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.
We rescue millions of pounds of this surplus food from farmers, manufacturers, grocery stores, and restaurants. We then deliver this healthy and nutritious food to 275 food banks, shelters and meal programs across Western Washington. 
Thanks to your support, we provide 90,000 meals to our hungry neighbors every day. This, combined with our policy and advocacy work creates a sustainable solution for ending hunger.
That’s why we say “Hunger Doesn’t Have to Happen.”
