We are a team of six college seniors who have been assigned to invest $5 in any way, with the goal of reaching a greater value over the span of only 2 hours. Limited only by our imagination (and $5 of course), we decided the greatest value would be created by raising money for a good cause. We've set our goal high, and we want you to help us raise $1,000 for the University District Food Bank to help families in need. Please share this page with your friends and family, and spread the word!
About the UNIVERSITY DISTRICT FOOD BANK
For more than a quarter of a century, University District Food Bank has helped prevent hunger in Northeast Seattle neighborhoods. Each week, more than 1,100 different families receive the groceries they need to prepare nutritionally balanced meals at home. Our innovative and award winning grocery store styled shopping system maximizes customer choice and ensures that all food bank customers take home three days of healthy food that is most appropriate to their specific needs and preferences.
In 2010, we had more than 54,200 customer visits and distributed over 2.2 million pounds of food. Approximately 2% of our clients are infants, 20% are children, 68% are adults, and 10% are senior citizens.
Our mission is to provide individuals and families who are in need with food and access to a network of community resources that helps them achieve self-sufficiency.
