One Million Meals

Healthy food for whole person health.

Coordinated Care has been committed to transforming the health of the community one person at a time, through affordable healthcare coverage and whole person health, since we opened our doors in 2012. We make access to healthy food a priority for our work in the community, knowing access to nutritious food is foundational to health and wellbeing.

We started very local and where our headquarters are in Pierce County, with Emergency Food Network (EFN), a food distribution center which supplies 15.5 million pounds of food every year to organizations throughout the region. We then broadened our volunteer and community giving efforts to other partners like Second Harvest and Northwest Harvest. 

When the COVID-19 pandemic magnified the need for healthy food in communities and homes across the country, we launched a campaign to provide 1 million meals across Washington. Through volunteer efforts, employee fundraising to leverage matching dollars from the company and by funding partner organizations. 

Fresh Outcomes

We surpassed our goal in the pilot year of our One Million Meals program, and as of December 2021, Coordinated Care provided over 4 million meals to Washingtonians. We've partnered with more than 10 organizations across Washington to: 

  • Fund 3 free grocery stores,
  • Provide 120,000 lbs. of food to 6,000 kids and families over school breaks, 
  • 900 food boxes to home-bound individuals, 
  • 750 Thanksgiving food boxes to families, 
  • 550 medically-tailored meals to individuals living with chronic illness, 
  • and supported mobile markets and home delivery services for those with limited mobility and for people living in rural areas.

Coordinated Care believes in whole person care and consistent access to healthy foods is a critical component that we focus on to complement provider visits. The 2022 One Million Meals campaign is on track to exceed the goal yet again.
