Food >> Food Assistance >> Basic Food Trends for Cities

Participation in Basic Food has plateaued in some, but not all, King County cities.

Uneven recovery from the Great Recession is reflected in differences in the patterns of Basic Food participation across King County cities.

  • While Basic Food participation in some cities peaked between 2011 and 2013, it is still rising in other cities.
  • Please see Notes & Sources II for tables showing annual Basic Food participation (numbers and percentages) for youth and all ages from 2002 through 2014 in 19 King County cities.
