Backpacks for KIDS
Click on the link above to learn more. Our organization is based in Goldendale, but we serve children all across Klickitat County. From Roosevelt to White Salmon, we are fighting child hunger one meal at a time. During the school year, we provide weekend food to kids who may go hungry without it. We are 100% driven by volunteers, including our Board of Directors.
Washington Gorge Action Programs (WGAP) is the Lead Agency and Distribution Center for the Food Banks in Klickitat and Skamania counties. Low-income individuals and families are eligible for a Food Box once a month. Food Boxes may contain canned goods, fresh produce, bread, and frozen meat. While the food in a box varies, generally there is enough for three to twelve nutritionally balanced meals depending on the size of the family.
A special Senior Box is also available, and for individuals with medical conditions requiring special diets, Special Dietary Needs boxes partially supply the necessary food. A Doctor's Statement of the medical condition is required for Special Needs boxes, and are available at WGAP Food Bank in Bingen and Goldendale Food Bank only.
