Welcome to PayScale's Food Frenzy page!
This is our 3rd annual fight against hunger as a company. We are competiting with other companies, including head to head with similar size tech companies such as Porch (all 3 years) and Highspot (2nd year).
Last year PayScale beat both Porch and Highspot, and raised over $6,000. Together the 3 companies raised more than $10,000, enough to recare more than 40,000 meals for hungry families in Western Washington.
How do we win the competition??

A bit from Food LifeLine: As winter approaches, those struggling to keep food on the table have new challenges. Colder weather means higher utility bills, a higher risk for family illness, and additional costs for winter clothing and other school related expenses.1 in 7 (14%) people face hunger in Western Washington 1 in 5 (20%) children struggle with hunger in Western Washington
Fall can be a tough time of year for families living paycheck to paycheck. Back to school shopping, higher utility bills and the cold & flu season can put additional strain on already stretched budgets. And this fall will prove to be challenging for even more families as COVID-19 continues to financially impact more than a million people in our state.
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, our state saw the need for food assistance double from about 850,000 people in a typical month to 1.6 million people as a result of the economic hardship caused by the pandemic.
With your support, Food Lifeline rescues surplus food from farmers, manufacturers, grocery stores and restaurants. Food Lifeline provides this food to more than 300 food banks, shelters and meal programs.
That’s why your involvement in Food Frenzy is so important! Through your support, we're able to get nutritious food into the communities that need it most, helping to relieve some of the financial burden and stress faced by many families this time of year as well as supporting those through the economic hardship brought on by COVID-19.
$1 donation = 5 meals
