Time for dinner on your own, then a W2FS meeting at Northwest Harvest’s SODO Community Market location.
Food Lifeline rescues millions of pounds of nutritious food from farmers, manufacturers, grocery stores, restaurants, and retailers that would otherwise go to waste.13,450 volunteers visit the Hunger Solution Center annually to help sort and repack nourishing food. Food Lifeline then distributes it to more than 300 food banks, shelters, and meal programs throughout Western Washington, providing the equivalent of 116,000 meals every day for hungry children, adults, and seniors.
There is also a chance to continue on to the Washington Women in Food Systems (W2FS) meeting this same evening! This meeting will be happening in close proximity, at the Northwest Harvest SODO Community Market (1915 4th Ave S, Seattle WA 98134) and will also include a tour!
Come join us! This is a great opportunity for team members to gather and connect, volunteer for a food sort afternoon, and tag along to the W2FS meeting for presentations and tours at the Northwest Harvest SODO Community Market.
