The coronavirus outbreak in Washington has caused a dramatic decrease in donations to Food Lifeline while the need for food for low-income families is increasing.
A $30 contribution can feed a family of four for four days with nutritious prepacked food boxes and $100 can source more than 1,000 pounds of produce.
More than half of the people in the Puget Sound region who depend on hunger relief from Food Lifeline are children, who may be without food when schools are closed, and seniors, who may have limited incomes and are most vulnerable to serious cases of COVID-19.
Adequate nutrition is vital to staying healthy. If we can raise $1000, Food Lifeline will be able to provide over 1500 nutritious meals or source 10,000 lbs of produce.
