Efficient & Accountable

Finding homes for food in need.

Whether you’re contributing your food, funds, time or voice to stopping hunger with Food Lifeline - we want you to know the current state of our combined efforts to end hunger in Western Washington.

That’s why we annually produce our Accountability Report, to give our community an update on who we’re serving, how we’re helping them and to show the overall health of our organization.

Food Lifeline’s most recent fiscal year ran from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014. Key highlights from this year include:

  • More than 778,000 people, unduplicated, visited a Food Lifeline supported food bank or meal program
  • An additional 4.6 million meals and snacks were provided via hot meal programs
  • Ninety-five percent of the food we distributed was donated by the food industry or the USDA
  • 9,943 volunteers together contributed the equivalent hours of 22 full time employees.

I Believe There is Power in Stories

Whether it’s a story of suffering that leads us on a path to change, or a story of achievement that illuminates that path for others, stories give our life meaning and purpose.
