Thanksgiving Food Drive

African Americans have some of the highest rates of chronic disease in King County and the nation. The death rates associated with these diseases are also very high too. Eating a poor diet can have numerous negative impacts and most Americans do not have a healthy diet. Heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, and obesity are chronic conditions linked to an unbalanced diet. Eating healthy can be challenging, especially when it’s not a natural habit and one’s health is likely to suffer the consequences.


However, changes in eating habits can mitigate the prevalence of chronic disease in the Black community and contribute to its overall health and wellness. It is important to understand that changing your diet is a lifestyle change, and those take time, patience, and effort. 

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, our Health and Wellness Drive goes beyond the ordinary. It’s a transformative event that brings all generations together, shedding light on the path to healthier living through the bounty of our food drive. Additionally, we unite a diverse array of health and wellness vendors a week before Thanksgiving, preparing nutritious feasts for families. 

 Our mission is clear: to educate and inspire.

 We aim to instill healthy eating habits into the hearts of all, promoting the value of cooking at home, adapting recipes for better nutrition, crafting weekly grocery lists, and so much more.
