Food Lifeline is on a mission to end hunger in Western Washington. They believe that access to food is a basic human right and that nobody deserves to be hungry. Food Lifeline provides nutritious food to 1.34 million people facing hunger by sourcing nutritious food from a variety of food industry partners. They distribute through a network of 350 food banks, shelters, and meal programs, enabling them to provide the equivalent of more than 282,000 meals every single day.
