PAO Begins Annual Fundraising Drive for Food Lifeline

Food Frenzy is a two-week competition to raise funds and volunteer with Food Lifeline to stop hunger for children in Western Washington – particularly in the summertime, when the need is the greatest.  This year, Food Frenzy runs from July 11 – 25. 

The PAO has won the Public Sector Division for the last eight years.  PAO sections and work groups come up with their own fundraisers and events.  There are also opportunities to volunteer at one of the Food Lifeline sites.  Visit www.foodlifeline.org for more information.   

Some startling stats and background:

  • 472,000 kids in Washington are on free and reduced lunches.

  • Of that, only 46,000 kids are getting food this summer.

  • Food Lifeline is changing this by bringing food to programs where kids in need live, learn and play during the summertime.

  • Utilizing strategic resources, including food that otherwise goes to waste (the “grocery rescue” program has rescued 93,301,039 pounds since 2002).

  • Food Lifeline’s reach is vast, from Lynden to Longview and from Aberdeen to Monroe, and just about every city, town and neighborhood in between.
