Our Pasifika Food NETworks was established to combat the devastating impacts of food insecurity experienced by our NHPI communities through providing region-specific access to culturally appropriate foods throughout Washington State. Fishing nets have traditionally been our symbol for the bounty of the Pacific Oceans and our values of collective stewarding of our harvests. We are also committed to fighting for Food Justice and Sovereignty in solidarity with Native communities to restore an embodied practice of growing local food sources, accessing land for farming and supporting farmers of color in Washington State.
Pasifika Food NETworks operates every 2nd and 4th Thursdays each month in Western Washington and also supplies to Clark, Cowlitz, Snohomish, Pierce & Thurston County. In Southwest Washington, Pasifika Food NETworks distributes food in Vancouver every 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month. Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are a Pacific Islander family in need of food supports or if you’re in Southwest Washington looking for food security, please contact Layla at email@example.com.
PICA-WA is partnered with Door Dash to deliver food boxes directly to your doorstep if you live in South King County within 15 miles from the PICA-WA office in Federal Way. Contact us to get added to our Door Dash list.
In Southwest Washington, food boxes get distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis to families that come pick them up during our distribution hours.
Thanks to our partners we are able to provide this food security support to our communities. If you serve a Pasifika congregation or community in Washington and would like to partner with PICA-WA to provide food for families, please reach out to us.
Many hands make for a lighter load! Volunteers are always needed and much appreciated on PFN days. If you are willing, able and available to help support our team in organizing and packing boxes, please come by the PICA-WA office between 10AM – 5PM on 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month.
