eBay Seattle -
Every year, nearly 40% of the food produced in the USA ends up in landfills while millions of people go hungry. 1 in 7 people face hunger in Western Washington, and 1 in 5 of them is a kid. Over the month of December, eBay Seattle has an opportunity to change that.
Food Lifeline rescues millions of pounds of nutritious food from farmers, manufacturers, grocery stores, restaurants, and retailers and distributes it to 300+ food banks, shelters, and meal programs throughout Western Washington, providing the equivalent of 116,000 meals daily for hungry children, adults, and seniors.
This year, in lieu of our typical Northwest Harvest food drive, we are doing something new. While a physical food drive is a great way to make a difference, it also comes with its own overhead and environmental costs. As such, this year eBay Seattle will be hosting a virtual food drive.
Our goal is $5000, and with every dollar donated, Food Lifeline is able to provide 4 nutritious meals to those in need. And it gets better - FTEs can eBay match these donations to double the impact!
Please join us in achieving this worthwhile goal over the next 31 days. It’s the time of year to spread cheer; let’s do some of that the eBay way, and go above and beyond to help those who are less fortunate.
Thank you, and happy giving!
