Northwest Harvest reports Washington is the 6th fastest growing state in the country in terms of severe hunger.

KING5's Home Team Harvest is underway this week with a goal of raising three million meals. Reporter Christie Johnson shares more on how you can help and meal ideas based on food donations.

Northwest Harvest feeds the hungry across the state. The most desired items: proteins like canned tuna and chicken, chili, canned vegetables, baby food.
