ACRS Walk for Rice 2018

QVAP Pride for Rice

We want to feed more hungry people in 2018! Please support QVAP Pride for Rice as we raise money to buy rice at the ACRS Food Bank AND celebrate Pride Month with ACRS staff and community.

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 5,136 people rely on our food bank and nutrition programs to have enough to eat. Nearly 70% of our clients are children under 18 years or seniors the average age of 73 years old. 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.

Last year, we raised over $3,000 for Walk for Rice. This year, QVAP Pride for Rice would like to again contribute at least $3,000 toward Walk for Rice. With your help, we know that with your help we can exceed this goal.

Thank you for considering joining our team and see on Saturday, June 30th, at Seward Park.
