The Providence North East Washington (N.E.W) Hunger Coalition includes 14 food banks, senior, school and veterans food programs, and community organizations that work together to resolve current challenges and reduce the root causes of hunger in northeast Washington. A Community Strategies grant of $11,300 to the Kettle Falls Community Chest in support of the Hunger Coalition is helping the organization increase its capacity through board, staff and volunteer trainings, improved fresh produce storage and delivery systems, healthy eating workshops, and development of effective advocacy and public outreach for future sustainability of its work to alleviate hunger and its root causes.
