Alliant is excited to partner with Food Lifeline for our 3rd annual food drive for World Food Day.
This year, our donations are more important than ever with so many people struggling to make ends meet. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and our state’s statewide stay-at-home order in March, Food Lifeline had to quickly adapt to dramatically increased demand for food. For perspective, hunger relief organizations serve about 850,000 people in Washington in a typical month. With the economic hardship caused by the pandemic, the number of food-insecure people in our state has doubled to 1.6 million people with a high likelihood that it could reach more than 2 million people before the crisis begins to subside.
What's great about this virtual food drive is that when we raise cash instead of cans, Food Lifeline is able to provide the equivalent of five complete meals for what it would cost you to purchase one can of food.
Our donations are essential to fund Food Lifeline's ongoing operations, enabling them to stay strong, stable and capable of delivering food relief to the community throughout this response.
THANK YOU for your donation, big or small, which will contribute to helping so many families in need.
