‘It’s all done with a labor of love from the community’: UTOPIA promotes food access and sovereignty from the QTPI community to all

UTOPIA team poses with their crops

Once word got out that UTOPIA was distributing food, requests for assistance came flooding in from across South King County communities, and UTOPIA responded by opening their doors to anyone in need of food.

UTOPIA has since grown from serving 12 to over 400 households per month. And, UTOPIA now partners with DoorDash to directly deliver food boxes; hosts the Makeki food pantry; serves free monthly hot meals, and farms fresh produce on a quarter-acre of land.
