Last year, we distributed 39.7 million meals to more than 708,976 hungry people through our network of more than 275 local food banks, meal programs and shelters.

Food Lifeline distributes food to 300 food banks, meal, programs and shelters in Western Washington to help end hunger. Their volunteer opportunities are marvelous with weekly community volunteer nights, family days, and special activities. They are one of the few non-profits who welcome kid volunteers as young as six. I've been volunteering with Food Lifeline for more than ten years and always feel inspired and motivated by the experience.
