Rotary First Harvest | Hunger Relief Refrigerator Grant Initiative

Hunger Relief Refrigerator Grant Initiative

As of Tuesday, June 18, 2019 the latest round of funding has been fully expended. We hope to continue the program with additional funding soon. Please look for additional information later this summer.


One of the highest-reported needs from our hunger relief partners across Washington is the need to safely and effectively store perishable and frozen foods prior to distribution.

Rotary First Harvest and Northwest Harvest are teaming up to provide up to $500 rebates toward the purchase of refrigerated and/or frozen storage units for hunger relief programs across Washington. This initiative was developed to continue the outstanding model that Dairy Farmers of Washington coordinated previously. We are delighted to announce that we recently engaged new funding partners to expand this initiative over the next few months.

Due to the limited amount of funding available, we can only provide one grant per organization. Grants are available on a first come, first served basis until funding is fully expended.

The Hunger Relief Refrigerator Grant Initiative is open to hunger relief partners in Washington, including meal programs, food pantries and tribal hunger relief programs. Eligible programs must be registered as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit in the state of Washington, have a fiscal sponsor supporting your services, or be a Federal or State recognized tribe.
