Washington Food Coalition is partnering with Nancy Bacon Consulting to provide educational opportunities for our community

Get Ready for a Disaster is designed for food banks and hunger relief organizations to give you information and tools to get your organization ready for a natural or pandemic disaster. This online course is designed for executive directors and board members so you can operationalize disaster preparation within your organization. It walks you through the why, what, and how of making your organization more resilient when facing natural or viral disasters. It gives you an effective tool to bring back into the life of your organization to support disaster planning.

We will help you to:

  • Engage your board, staff, and community in disaster preparedness work
  • Evaluate what your organization needs to do
  • Build a disaster-ready culture
  • Implement key disaster preparedness actions
