Food Lifeline stops people from going hungry by applying ingenuity to this largely logistical problem. Our programs find creative ways to feed more families, including redirecting good food that might have otherwise gone to waste; and our policy work defends the community’s safety net and reduces barriers to people feeding themselves.
In a world of plenty, there is no excuse for there to be hungry families in Western Washington.

Rainforests are one of the most important natural resources left on Earth. They safely store billions of tons of carbon, helping ward off climate change. Tropical forests remain untapped resources for scientific and medical discoveries—a quarter of all medicines are sourced from plants found deep in the rainforests. They are also home to thousands of unique animals that depend on the protection of rainforest for their survival.

Giving Back

As I was taught by my parents, we wish to teach our children to give back, to the individual, the community, the world. My youngest son once said, "How could he give, if he didn't have money?"  My response was, can you read a book to someone who is visually impaired?  Can you help to lift something for someone who is frail?  He was silent and understood.




Below are a list of some of the organizations that our family has donated to, either through charity events, percentage of sales, volunteering or personal contributions.
