Washington state is the 14th hungriest in the country, but KING 5 and Northwest Harvest is trying to change that with the 12th Annual Home Team Harvest.

Since the start of the economic collapse in 2008, the number of hungry people they serve in Washington State has doubled. All those individuals who are still unemployed, under employed, or so far under water that their savings have long since dried up. Those folks need us to have another great year.

With your help, it will be. Just 67 cents can feed a family of three.

KING 5 also has the incredible good fortune to work with corporate sponsors, U.S. Bank and Safeway stores. With their help, we know we will reach our goal of raising 3 million meals this holiday season.
