When and where?
SATURDAY, JUNE 30, 2018, 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at Seward Park (5902 Lake Washington Blvd S) in Seattle.
Why is participating in the Walk important?
The ACRS Food Bank is the one of the most visited food banks in King County, and the only one in the state that regularly provides foods that are familiar to the Asian and Pacific Islander (AAPI) diet. Each year, more than 5,200 people rely on our food bank and nutrition programs to have enough to eat. More than 56% of our clients are children under 18 years or seniors over 65. Most come from low-income, AAPI households. Our food bank is located in Seattle’s Chinatown International District and provides items like rice, tofu, noodles, fish and fresh produce. Our goal is to help clients lead healthy lives by providing them with nutritious food.
Asian Counseling and Referral Service (ACRS) is a nationally-recognized nonprofit organization offering a broad array of human services and behavioral health programs to Asian Pacific Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) in King County. ACRS is the largest multiservice organization serving all the different AAPI communities – immigrants, refugees and American-born – in the Pacific Northwest.
