Food insecurity and poverty are two of the most important issues affecting our community and go hand in hand. Poverty can cause food insecurity but food insecurity can also cause poverty.  A person experiencing food insecurity has less energy for work, education, and other activities, which can lead to financial and housing instability as well as physical and mental health issues.

In 2023 alone, people seeking food assistance in Western Washington grew by 63% to more than 1.6 million. 35% of people facing food insecurity make 185% of the federal poverty line, which makes them ineligible for public nutrition assistance programs like SNAP and WIC which are already inadequate to meet the needs of those who qualify.

YPCommunities featured nonprofit, Food Lifeline is working to combat food insecurity and its causes, including poverty, racial inequity, and social injustice. They believe that access to food is a basic human right and that nobody deserves to be hungry. Food Lifeline provides nutritious food to 1.6 million people facing hunger by sourcing nutritious food from a variety of food industry partners. They distribute through a network of 296 food banks, shelters, and meal programs, enabling them to provide the equivalent of more than 233,457 meals every single day. They do this through advocacy efforts to shape local, state, and federal policy, by partnering with organizations that are addressing other causes of poverty, and through engagement and bundling food assistance with other community-based programs and services.

Your support is needed more than ever right now. People are showing up at Food Lifeline's front desk asking for food. Please join us in helping our neighbors and the community put food on the table.
