It’s not too late to join us this summer for Food Frenzy!

Food Frenzy is a company-run fundraising competition that brings together over 70 companies from the greater Seattle area to help feed kids facing hunger when schools close for the summer. For two action-packed weeks, July 12-26, businesses earn points by hosting food drives, volunteering at the Hunger Solution Center, and holding fundraisers that benefit Food Lifeline.

Every year, more than 375,000 children in Western Washington receive free and/or reduced meals at school, but lose access to those meals when schools close down for the summer. This puts additional pressure on stretched budgets and families miss out on essential nutrition.

Last year, 67 Food Frenzy teams raised over $620,304 to mitigate the impact of hunger during these challenging summer months. They also contributed 2,753 volunteer hours and collected 7,144 food items.

One of these teams, Sound Community Bank, loves that Food Frenzy allows them to give back to their community, one of their core values. Returning as the presenting sponsor, this is their 14th year competing! For them, Food Frenzy is a fun combination of volunteerism, fundraising, and donating. Their goal each year is to make it fun, make it engaging, and make it easy to participate in. After so many years participating, they have their competition down to a tee, utilizing a template calendar, team captains, and extensive tracking tools including checklists, pre-made spreadsheets, and shared drives to store files. They also volunteer year-round to start accruing Food Frenzy points early.
