COVID-19 is having disastrous effects on the most vulnerable among us, both at home and abroad.  Food Lifeline is a non-profit that regularly serves over 300 Western Washington state food banks.  They have seen, first hand, how the economic hardship caused by closed businesses has increased food insecurity all across our state. 

In addition to their regular work, Food Lifeline is now working with Governor Jay Inslee's office, Second Harvest,Northwest Harvest and even the National Guard to create emergency food boxes that are being distributed every week to families in Washington State.

FACTS: 

  • COVID-19 has reduced food bank donations by 70%
  • Food insecurity has doubled since COVID-19 hit our community in February, 2020
  • 1.6 million people are now food insecure in our state
  • More than 65,000 emergency food boxes are now being distributed each week

CALL TO ACTION:  (From Food Lifeline's blog, May 20,2020)

"Private philanthropy will be essential to fund our ongoing operations, enabling Food Lifeline to stay strong, stable and capable of delivering food relief to the community throughout this response. Our needs are especially acute on the front end of this effort."

We want to respond in a powerful and impactful way.

Engage, the charitable arm of Mox Boarding House, a division of Card Kingdom, Inc. is teaming up with friends and colleagues across the table top gaming world to raise money for Food Lifeline for hunger relief.
