Every year, nearly 40% of our country’s food ends up in landfills, while millions go hungry. Food Lifeline has a solution for both problems. Food Lifeline rescues millions of pounds of this surplus food from farmers, manufacturers, grocery stores, and restaurants. They then deliver this healthy and nutritious food to 275 food banks, shelters and meal programs across Western Washington. They provide 90,000 meals to their hungry neighbors every day. This, combined with their policy and advocacy work creates a sustainable solution for ending hunger. That’s why we say “Hunger Doesn’t Have to Happen.”
