Food Lifeline is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending hunger in Western Washington. Food Lifeline makes every penny count, and 94% of the food we receive from local, state and national contributors is donated.
Food Lifeline provides a creative link between food sources and hungry people. We encourage the food industry to donate unmarketable but usable food that would otherwise be discarded. Local restaurants and caterers contribute prepared food through our award-winning Seattle's Table program, and fresh produce is collected from wholesalers and retailers through our Produce for the People program. Local grocery retailers also donate a variety of nutritious products like meat, dairy, fresh produce and baked goods through our Grocery Rescue program.
Food Lifeline is also the designated agency for distribution of state and federal food commodities in King County, an affiliate of Feeding America, and is one of the United Way of King County's partner agencies.
