Food Lifeline receives donations

Food Lifeline recently received generous gifts from The Boeing Company and the Boeing Employees Community Fund. A gift of $12,500 was made by the Boeing Employees Community Fund to Food Lifeline to help offset the costs of Food Lifeline’s response to the hurricanes in the Gulf States and Florida. A gift of $25,000 was made by The Boeing Company to support the increased need for food distribution here in the Puget Sound and as a result of the hurricane disaster relief.

Both Boeing and its employees group noted that because Food Lifeline is a part of America’s Second Harvest – The Nation’s Food Bank Network, and responded to the hurricane needs in the south, each wanted to make sure that the needs of hurricane victims and hungry people in Western Washington are met.

Food Lifeline is the largest non-profit food distribution organization in Washington dedicated to hunger relief, and is the Western Washington affiliate of America’s Second Harvest.
