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 and also supplies to Clark, Cowlitz, Snohomish, Pierce & Thurston County. Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are a Pacific Islander family in need of food supports.
PICA-WA is partnered with Door Dash to deliver food boxes directly to your doorstep if you live in South King County within 10 miles from the PICA-WA office in Federal Way. Contact us to get added to our Door Dash list.
Families who are signed up for Pasifika Food NETworks and able to drive to the PICA-WA office in Federal Way are welcome to drive through pick up their boxes individually. Contact us to get added to our pick-up list.
Thanks to our partners we are able to provide food security support to our communities. If you serve a Pasifika congregation 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.
