New name, same mission for nonprofit
After more than 40 years as FISH Food Banks, the largest network of food banks in metro-Tacoma is changing its name to Nourish Pierce County.
“Nourish reflects not only what we do, but also the way in which staff, volunteers, donors and our entire community work together to provide nutritious food to anyone who needs it,” explains Sue Potter, executive director of the nonprofit agency.
Founded by the faith community in the early 1970s, today Nourish is an independent nonprofit, governed by a community board of directors. It runs seven food banks and serves another 10 locations via its Mobile Food Bank, operated in partnership with Emergency Food Network.
Nourish Pierce County will unveil its name, logo and new identity in the coming weeks, gradually phasing in collateral, business cards and an updated website to keep costs down – and feed more people.
