Chef John Howie has been a generous partner in the fight against hunger in our community for more than a decade. Each year, the John Howie Restaurant Group — which includes Seastar Restaurant and Raw Bar, John Howie Steak, SPORT Restaurant & Bar and Beardslee Public House — partners with the Seattle Seahawks through the Taste of the NFL event and the Kick Hunger Challenge, a friendly fundraising competition among NFL teams. These efforts have raised a total of $525,000 for Food Lifeline since 2004.
Local hunger champions, Chef John Howie and former Seahawk Craig Terrill, rallied generous 12s throughout the NFL season to raise $88,693 for Food Lifeline.
The substantial effort earned the Seattle Seahawks team captains a second place finish in the Kick Hunger Challenge, which generated an additional $5,000 prize from the Taste of the NFL to increase the total Food Lifeline donation to $93,693.
