The Pacific Mountain Workforce Development Council (PacMtn WDC) is proud to be partnering with SW WA Food Hub to address hunger and support food security at a community level through their Regional Food Security Project. The focus of PacMtn’s involvement is to provide important employment readiness training around food systems and food preparation to support strained food systems and labor force impacts of COVID19.
Pacific Mountain WDC’s Regional Food Security Project utilizes the SW WA Food Hub’s distribution system to distribute boxes of farm fresh food as training supplies to people in need throughout a five-county region — in Grays Harbor, Lewis, Mason, Pacific, and Thurston Counties. Individuals who live in these counties and have been unemployed or under-employed due to the impacts of COVID-19 are able to sign up for one of a limited number of slots within the program. The program runs from Summer 2020-Late Fall 2020.
This food preparation training focuses on employment readiness, including virtual online instruction and practical at-home hands-on practice with training supplies of farm-fresh food weekly, free of charge, available at a local pick-up spot.
PacMtn is an equal opportunity employer /program. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities. WA Relay 711
