I'm participating in Food Frenzy, a fun event to raise funds for Food Lifeline. Did you know that 1 in 5 kids in Washington is food insecure? Did you know there are schools in which over 75% (or more!) of the students qualify for free or reduced lunches?! Did you know that 40% of the food grown and manufactured in the US goes to waste?!
Food Lifeline addresses all of that and more. We rescue food, then with the help of thousands of volunteers, redirect it to hungry people through our 275 partner agencies, shelters and meal programs. We rescued almost 40 million pounds of food last year!
We're REALLY good at this, too. For every dollar donated, we're able to create 5 complete meals! Your support is both needed and appreciated please help with even the smallest donation.
Thank you for helping Make sure that Hunger Doesn't Have to Happen!
