I just made a donation. Sounds like a good cause.

What You'll Get


The Issue: Food Insecurity in Western Washington

One in six Washington households was food insecure in 2012, meaning its residents didn't know where their next meal was coming from. In these circumstances, people are often forced to decide between paying for heat, medicine, gas, or food. And yet 40% of food grown or raised in the US is not eaten. For Food Lifeline, then, the problem becomes a matter of logistics.

The Campaign: Distributing Food to People in Need

All donations to this Grassroots campaign will be used by Food Lifeline to feed underserved people across western Washington. For every $25 raised, Food Lifeline can distribute 100 nutritious meals to people who are hungry. Food Lifeline takes donated food that would likely go to waste and delivers them to local non-profits, providing at least 30% of meals served by the area's food programs.

The Fine Print


100% of donations go directly to Food Lifeline. Donations are automatically applied. See Grassroots FAQs that apply to this campaign. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

About Food Lifeline


Each day in western Washington, a fleet of 15 trucks drives a combined 690 miles to pick up donations to deliver to agencies. Their cargo: food—nutritious food that annually totals nearly 36 million pounds, which works out to roughly 30 million meals. These trucks are part of Food Lifeline, a vast network of volunteers, grocery stores, and non-profits that work to ensure everyone in the region has something to eat.

To provide the amount of food it does—more than any non-profit in Washington—Food Lifeline relies on efficiency. The organization redirects food from grocers, farmers, and distributors that would likely have gone to waste. Food banks then distribute this food and prepared meals to whoever needs help getting meals, including children, seniors, and families.
