About Good Food Kitchens

Good Food Kitchens is a food assistance, economic development, and local food resilience program serving King County. Good Food Kitchens provides funds directly to restaurants to prepare meals for those in need, helping to keep their doors open and workers employed safely, while purchasing from local farms and producers and creating long-term local supply chain relationships.

Our Inspiration

Inspired by World Central Kitchen, and the tireless and creative restaurateurs and chefs who are working to combat hunger and food insecurity locally, Good Food Kitchens is raising funds and awareness to support the following community kitchens:

Economic Impact

The stay-at-home orders and COVID-19-related restrictions have had a crushing economic impact on restaurants, farms, and the local economy, while food insecurity has skyrocketed, with 40% of those seeking food assistance having never done so before. Food service businesses have been among the hardest hit, making up 7.4% of the WA economy and experiencing more than three times the job losses of any other industry. Approximately 2,400 restaurants and bars in the state closed permanently during the first six months, with 43% of those in King County alone. Independent restaurants redistribute and average of 94% of all revenues back into the economy, 79% of that to local businesses, including farms and food producers.
