Spokane Food Policy Council Survey, Voices of Hope - August 14

Spokane Food Policy Council Survey 

Would you like to help improve our local food system? We value your support and know you care about food. As one of the founding members of the Spokane Food Policy Council, Second Harvest hopes you will add your voice to future plans to reduce food insecurity and improve our regional food system. Your participation in the Spokane Food Policy Council’s survey will raise awareness of food system challenges and inform an action plan that encourages new opportunities for economic development, jobs and improved health for all residents of Spokane County.

Your survey responses will be used to identify priorities for a sustainable regional food system. The survey is anonymous and will take about 10 minutes to complete. Thank you for helping the Spokane Food Policy Council move forward with this important work. Your input is invaluable! To access the survey, click here – and please share with your friends.

“Thank you very much. It’s very appreciated - I think probably by everybody that comes here. But I know I appreciate it, and the people I have shared it with really appreciate it. I just think that this is a blessing. It really is.” 

Sharon shared these words as she waited in a long line of cars for a Mobile Market free food distribution to begin. As a retiree and someone in a high-risk category for COVID-19 complications, the distributions help her not only access healthy food on a limited budget but also stay socially distanced from others in the process.  

“For somebody that doesn’t have a lot of money or is no longer getting a paycheck, these are crucial for them. They’re so wonderful,” said Sharon. Read more of Sharon’s story here.
