Participation in Basic Food by youth 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 by youth (from birth to age 17) 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 & SourcesĀ 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.
