Last week, our Seattle team spent the afternoon volunteering at Food Lifeline’s South Seattle warehouse. Under the watchful eye and guidance of Kevin, our host from Food Lifeline, and with hit tunes from the 80’s and 90’s pumping overhead, the team found it’s groove—sorting, packing, hefting, palettizing, and shrink-wrapping over 5,700 pounds of food and beverage—all destined for distribution to families facing hunger throughout Western Washington.
MGAC’s Seattle team enjoyed working together to make a difference in the community! Special thanks to Dale Stern for doing the research, finding Food Lifeline, and coordinating all the arrangements necessary to make the effort a success!
Food Lifeline is on a mission to end hunger in Western Washington. They believe that access to food is a human right and that nobody deserves to be hungry. Food Lifeline provides nutritious food to hundreds of thousands of people facing hunger every year by sourcing nutritious food from a variety of food industry partners. They distribute this food through a partnership with 350 food banks, shelters, and meal programs, enabling them to provide the equivalent of more than 201,000 meals every single day. At the same time, they are working to end hunger for the future by addressing its root causes, including systemic inequity and social injustice. They do this through advocacy efforts to shape local, state, and federal policy, by partnering with organizations that are addressing other causes of poverty, and through community engagement and mobilization efforts.
