Where: Food Lifelines Shoreline Distribution Center 1702 NE 150th Street (on the Fircrest Campus)Shoreline, WA
Why: Each year, over 3,700 Food Lifeline volunteers repack, sort, label, and process nearly 940,000 pounds of food donations, making themavailable for hungry people across Western Washington. In a show of their commitment towards ending hunger, Councilmember Larry Phillips and his staff have challenged Councilmember Sally Clarks office to a food processing competition to see which office can complete more pounds of food for those in need.

Nearly 250,000 people in King County needed the help of food banks to get by last year, said Councilmember Phillips. The work Food Lifeline does in getting food to the hungry in King County is crucial.

Hunger is a very real problem in our community. Food Lifeline and the people who volunteer their time, money and food are making a difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands of our neighbors and families, said Councilmember Clark.

Food Lifeline is a nonprofit food distribution center serving a network of food banks, meal programs, and shelters across Western Washington, including 139 agencies in King County. Last year the organization delivered more than 21 million pounds of food for hungry people. Food Lifeline is a certified member of Americas Second Harvest, the Nations Food Bank Network.
