You know the saying "it takes a village to raise a child". Well, here at Food Lifeline, we know it takes an amazing community to get so much food to so many people. Since 1998, we recognize some of those community members through our Ending Hunger Awards. These annual awards are given to individuals and companies who go above and beyond to stop hunger. Through their actions, these Ending Hunger Award recipients demonstrate their belief that in this world of plenty, there is no excuse for there to be hungry people in Western Washington.
When you choose to help stop hunger by volunteering, you make it possible for Food Lifeline to provide 82,000 meals a day across Western Washington. Because volunteers are so important we want to make it easy for you to sign up and get involved. Our newly re-designed volunteer registration system does just that.

Hunger is a real issue that plagues our communities, towns and nation. Today 1 in 7 people in Western Washington struggle to fill their plates or stock their pantries without help from the hunger relief network. Hunger Action Month seeks to help you rally our communities to learn more about hunger.

You may have wondered to yourself, what exactly happens to the food you place in your blue bag. The short answer is that it goes to people struggling with hunger. However the more interesting answer demonstrates the way the hunger relief world comes together to stop hunger. After being collected by your local letter carrier, your bag starts a journey captured in the video below.
What kinds of people dedicate their time to re-packing frozen peas, labeling instant oatmeal or sorting through food drive donations? Food Lifeline volunteers, of course. April is National Volunteer Appreciation Month and so last Saturday we invited a group of some of our most dedicated volunteers to join us for a special volunteer session. After sorting through over a truckload of food donations in fewer than 2 hours, volunteers enjoyed a delicious lunch catered by Dante’s Inferno Hot Dogs and swapped stories about their time with us.
