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.
Our Pasifika Food NetWorks operates every 2nd and 4th Thursdays each month and can deliver food boxes to Pacific Islanders that live in South King County. We also supply to Clark, Cowlitz, Snohomish, Pierce & Thurston County. Please reach out to us if you are a Pacific Islander family that needs food supports and we will get back to you right away.
If you live in South King County within 10 miles from the PICA-WA office, we can deliver food boxes on 2nd and 4th Thursdays every month. Call us!
If you are able to drive to the PICA-WA office on 2nd and 4th Thursdays to pick up a food box, please call us and we will sign you up for individual pick-up.
If you serve a Pasifika congregation and would like to partner with PICA-WA to provide food for families, please reach out to us.
Volunteers are needed on 2nd and 4th Thursdays starting at 10am and ending at 3pm. Many hands make for a lighter load. Thank you!
