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.

Members of Congress Visit Kids Cafe Sites

While many kids are out and enjoying their summers, not all have adequate access to enough food to eat. There are over 485,000 kids who eat free and reduced-price meals during the school year, but where do they get food when school is out? Food Lifeline aims to feed more children in the summer through our Kids Cafe program. Recently, Congressman Rick Larsen and Congresswoman Suzan DelBene visited two of these Kids Cafe sites.

Mariama Bids Us Adieu

This summer, I was an intern for Food lifeline as a part of the Bank of America Student Leaders Program. I didn’t quite know what to expect coming in, just that Food Lifeline is a well-known nonprofit that distributes food. As a part of my internship, I learned about all of the different departments at Food Lifeline and worked on projects for the policy team.

Your Generosity Helps Feed the Next Generation

As the site director of the Eastside Terrace Boys & Girls Club in Bellevue, Kristi Holmes works hard to ensure every child who comes through the door after school receives a nutritious Kids Cafe meal. The Club partners with Food Lifeline to provide these healthy after-school meals because otherwise, many of the kids she serves would have nothing to eat before breakfast at school the next day.
