ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

More than 40 million pounds of food has passed through the warehouse of the Washington State Food Lifeline, located at 815 S. 96th in South Park this year. The Food Lifeline has been distributing food from their new location since April of this year.

It is food that otherwise would have gone to waste, save for the volunteers and administration of the distribution to more than 275 food banks throughout western Washington. 

Expansion plans call for doubling the amount of food the Lifeline is able to warehouse, keep cool and distribute via a fleet of trucks to the community food banks they serve.

Special consideration and care is taken to refine the deliveries to accommodate the needs of each community. Local food banks can make requests, if certain foods are available, and have more of different types of those foods delivered. 

Like the food that is donated from area grocers, wholesale distributors and generous individual donors, the Food Lifeline operates largely on volunteer labor.
