Purpose:
The Washington Army National Guard continues to support our local communities by launching a newly implemented program, “Guard Against Hunger.” The Washington National Guard’s new hunger initiative is designed to reduce the impact of hunger on its local communities through engaging and educating residents about the impact hunger has within the state.

Statistics:  It’s estimated that the state of Washington is the 23rd hungriest state in the nation. One in five kids in Washington state lives in a household that struggles to put food on the table and rely heavily on their local food bank and pantry providers.

The Washington Army National Guard is headquartered at Camp Murray, Washington.  With more than 8,000 soldiers, airmen and civilian employees, this world-class organization has a proud heritage of service to this country since 1636, and this state since 1855.  The citizen soldiers of The Washington National Guard are dedicated to the mission of safeguarding lives and property in Washington State.  Our citizen soldiers come from every community, profession and background from around the state - we are “Fighting Hunger, Feeding Hope.”
Volunteer Opportunities:
  • The Washington Army National Guard is encouraging local residents to collect non-perishable food items for their local food banks.

  • The Washington Army National Guard is encouraging state high school students to collect non-perishable food items for their local food banks. The Guard Against Hunger program provides the framework and “turnkey” support for a school’s annual food drive.
