Nourish Pierce County (formerly FISH Food Banks) is about people.

Volunteers, clients, donors, supporters, neighbors, seniors, children, the working poor, loving families.

Nourish Pierce County is about Community.

The neighborhoods we serve, creating connections within each food bank, a supportive network, the village of volunteers it takes to accomplish monthly food distribution to nearly 50,000 people.

Nourish Pierce County is about Stories.

Transforming lives, supporting each other, clients giving back to the organization that supports them in hard times, the joy on a child’s face when she receives a cake and stuffed animal to make her birthday special, hardships and tears, joy and accomplishments.
