Funding Food Security for the Local UW Community

Due to rising food insecurity rates on the UW Seattle campus, the UW Food Pantry – which provides low-barrier food access to all UW students, faculty, and staff – asked the team to help locate sustainable funding resources to better address the increase the demand for their services. The team collaborated with the Pantry to research grants, contact foundations, and meet with other food pantries to produce a Google spreadsheet outlining funding opportunities applicable for the organization’s growing needs.
