With all schools closed in Washington state and seniors encouraged to stay home, the demand to get emergency food kits into the community is at an all-time high.
In Western Washington, more than 250,000 students on free and reduced price meals plans and their families are impacted by school closures. Similarly, access to healthy food is already challenging for low-income seniors and is now exacerbated by the need to limit interactions with others due to their increased risk of COVID-19 infection. In times of crisis such as the COVID-19 pandemic, those most in need are dis-proportionally affected.
To respond to these challenges, Food Lifeline has shifted to sourcing truckload volumes of cased-out essential groceries and hardy produce items. Food Lifeline is also mobilizing its capacity to pre-pack food boxes that can be directly distributed to families either at neighborhood food banks or through home delivery. The steps Food Lifeline is taking carry significant additional costs and present new and logistical challenges.
Please join us in supporting the thousands of kids and seniors impacted.
