About

Food Lifeline is in URGENT need of weekday volunteers to process food donations. Volunteer attendance drastically declines during the summer month but Food Lifeline's distribution increases to provide for children and families who rely on free or reduced school meals.

By redirecting good food from local farmers, grocers and restaurants that might otherwise go to waste, Food Lifeline annually distributes more than 39 million pounds of food and supplies to a network of 275 hunger relief partners across Western Washington. Whether you volunteer weekly or once a year, your time will provide meals to those who might otherwise go without.
