    This fun group of Camp Fire kids was asked what their favorite service project from 2013 was, and it was a unanimous answer-- helping at the food bank! So they joined us at NW Tacoma FISH again this year and had a blast sorting and bagging donations for the families we serve. Thanks kids! See you next year! View All »

      Children

      40% of FISH clients are children ages 18 and younger. 1 in 4 kids in Washington lives in a household that struggles to put food on the table. Summertime is hungry time: we rank 40th out of 50 states in reaching low-income children with summer nutrition. This is our call to action!
