Catholic Charities of Eastern Washington SNAP Ed Program

About Us

Catholic Charities Eastern Washington Food For All has provided SNAP-Ed programming throughout eastern Washington since 2014 as part of the Washington State Farmers Market Association’s Regional Lead program and since 2016 with Farm to Community programming. We have focused on promotion of food benefit programming at farmers markets, kids activities at farmers market, gleaning farmers markets, implementing access to fresh produce at low-income housing communities, food pantries, and early learning centers, and installing and/or revitalizing community garden beds at early learning centers, community centers, and low-income housing sites.
