Help Wilcynski Partners fight hunger this holiday season – we are matching your donation!
Every year during the month of December, our team supports a local non-profit by collecting donations, and this year, it is estimated that 1 in 5 people in Western Washington is experiencing food insecurity due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to this urgent need for assistance, we are teaming up with Food Lifeline through January 31st to collect non-perishable food donations as well as monetary donations in support of the organization and the work they are doing to feed local families.
Every $1 donated provides the equivalent of 5 meals and as an added incentive to participate, our team will match up to $10,000 of the funds collected during the month, making your cash donation twice as effective!

ABOUT FOOD LIFELINE
Food Lifeline is on a mission to end hunger in Western Washington. We believe that access to food is a human right and that nobody deserves to be hungry. Food Lifeline provides nutritious food to hundreds of thousands of people facing hunger every year by sourcing nutritious food from a variety of food industry partners. We distribute this food through a partnership with 300 food banks, shelters, and meal programs, enabling us to provide the equivalent of 134,000 meals every single day. At the same time we are working to end hunger for the future by addressing its root causes, including systemic inequity and social injustice. We do this through advocacy efforts to shape local, state, and federal policy, by partnering with organizations that are addressing other causes of poverty, and through community engagement and mobilization efforts.
Food Lifeline has been working to end hunger in Western Washington for more than 40 years and is the largest hunger-relief organization in Washington State. By using 96% of our revenue to feed people facing hunger, we are efficient, effective, and make the most of every donation. Food Lifeline provides nutritious food to hundreds of thousands of people facing hunger every year by sourcing nutritious food from a variety of food industry partners.
Last year, Food Lifeline distributed more than 58 million pounds of food to our network of more than 300 local food banks, meal programs, and shelters. Food Lifeline partners with large-scale food producers, retailers, and distributors to ensure that unmarketable but still edible and nutritious food ends up in the hands of people facing hunger rather than going to waste.
