The Hunger Prevention Council of Pierce County, Inc. (HPC) is an independent, non-profit organization formed in 1999 to address inconsistent responses to hunger across Pierce County.
The membership of the council includes various food pantries, organizations, government agencies, non-profits and concerned citizens. The group meets regularly working towards reducing hunger and providing access to healthy foods across Pierce County. While the Pierce County Food Pantry, located in Ellsworth, is a program of HPC, the other food pantries located in Pierce County remain independent. The Council offers these food pantries and other organizations working to alleviate hunger in Pierce County the unique opportunity to work as a group to attract donations, enact programming and pool resources.
