The Emergency Feeding Program exists to serve a basic need—hunger. Our job is to make sure that no one in King County has to go hungry for even one night.
EFP provides an emergency response to hunger that helps people get through the night. We pack 15 varieties of nutritionally balanced, culturally appropriate non-perishable food packs that we make available to people in our community who are experiencing hunger. We work with over 180 distribution partners—including schools, public health clinics and churches—to meet our clients wherever they are and to guide them to the long-term resources they need to get back on their feet. We do not turn anyone away.
Our mission is to provide an emergency response to the nutritional needs of people in crisis hunger situations throughout King County. We are dedicated to alleviating hunger while providing individuals with resource counselling to help move them towards greater independence. For more info, please visit www.emergencyfeeding.org.

The Eastside Nihon Matsuri Association is a non-profit organization of community volunteers whose goal is to share Japan’s rich cultural heritage with Washington State. For the past 20 years they have hosted an annual Japan Fall Festival in Bellevue, WA, aimed at bringing together local artists and craftsmen to share Japan’s traditional arts. From Martial arts demonstrations and Taiko drumming, to pop dances and cosplay, the Fair has been a lively cultural exchange adored by those of all ages.
This year’s festival, Japan Fair 2016, is a free event that will be held over Labor Day Weekend at Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue. Information can be found at the Japan Fair website: www.japanfairus.org
