Ending Hunger Through Financial Stability: A Mobile Intervention

The cycles of poverty our clients struggle with force them to make impossible trade-offs. Choosing between purchasing food and paying a medical or utility bill is an unfortunate reality for many of the people we serve. The good news is that Food Lifeline is helping to stabilize those trades-offs by providing food to our most vulnerable community members.  Through our mobile feeding programs, we have the opportunity to not only feed hungry people, but also to disrupt generational poverty.

Supporting a Supporter

Nutritious food plays a vital role in our overall health. Yet too many low-income communities lack equitable access to nutritious, affordable, fresh foods. Limited access makes it difficult to eat the specified diet necessary for managing or preventing conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and/or obesity. That's why Food Lifeline is launching a pilot project with Sea Mar Community Health Centers to provide nutrient-dense, diabetes-appropriate food. The success of the project means bringing this program to health clinics across Western Washington.

A Rescue Mission

Chris Hartman and I are like explorers, on the search for the next big find. We peruse through the QFC and Safeway back rooms, letting out a whoop every time we discover a crate of food with the Food Lifeline label resting on top.

“It’s the thrill of the hunt,” says Chris, “and each time you find more food than expected, it’s like striking it rich! You can imagine all the extra people you’ll help feed”.

Can't See The Desert For The Trees

When you hear the term “food desert”, you might think of the dense inner city neighborhoods of New York, Chicago, or Detroit. But the problem is closer to home than you think. Believe it or not, Renton is considered a “food desert”.

A food desert is an urban area that combines low-income residents, with poor access to fresh food. (more than a mile) The USDA measures these variables and maps out the trouble spots.
