Food Bank Delivery Programs: Best Practices Across the U.S.

The United Way of King County (UWKC) has been running a county-wide food bank delivery program since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic (March 2020). To provide the best and most efficient service UWKC partnered with the University of Washington Nutritional Sciences Program 2nd year graduate students for assistance with research on local and national best practices to inform further improvements to their program. The primary purpose of this project was to identify food bank delivery programs throughout the United States and collect information on their experiences running the program. This capstone project summarizes best practices and challenges other programs have faced.
These project findings will be a resource for UWKC to make changes to best serve participants and ensure their program is sustainable.

This project was completed as part of NUTR 596: Nutrition Practice Capstone.
