Every year, nearly 40% of our country’s food ends up in landfills, while millions go hungry.
Food Lifeline has a solution for both problems.
We rescue millions of pounds of this surplus food from farmers, manufacturers, grocery stores, and restaurants. We then deliver this healthy and nutritious food to 275 food banks, shelters and meal programs across Western Washington.
Thanks to your support, we provide 90,000 meals to our hungry neighbors every day. This, combined with our policy and advocacy work creates a sustainable solution for ending hunger.
That’s why we say “Hunger Doesn’t Have to Happen.”
Food Lifeline is regularly recognized for our innovative programs, such as Grocery Rescue, Seattle’s Table and Mobile Food Pantry which are finding new and sustainable ways to redirect surplus food to people in need.
Founded in 1979, Food Lifeline is led by a board of directors that represents our community and the food industry. Food Lifeline employs a staff of more than 80 dedicated team members, from truck drivers to food industry specialists, who all bring a passion to stopping hunger to their work.
Food Lifeline is a proud member of the Feeding America network. This relationship allows us to bring hunger-stopping best practices, relationships with national food brands and food surpluses from sister agencies back to Western Washington.

Is this a virtual run / walk? You are CORRECT!
What is a virtual run / walk? A virtual run / walk is one that you do on your own time and on the road, track, or trail of your choice. We give you a flexible timeframe to complete your miles and invite you to the super-supportive Bacon Blitz community. Once you're done, you can report your results to our official leaderboard, shoot for awards and prizes, and feel fantastic knowing you just benefitted a nature conservation in a fun way.
Why should I participate in this virtual run / walk? Because what's better than getting fit, getting swag, and having a good ol' time in the Bacon Blitz!? And these reasons:
Who can participate? Everybody! There is no age limit, no restrictions. So run, jog, walk, or crawl (not recommended, unless you’re a quadruped or really really odd). Go alone, in a group, with your pet -- it's completely up to you. Just get out, be your best, and enjoy yourself!
My kid wants to participate, but I'm sitting this one out. Can I sign them up? Kids can be registered to participate on their own.
I have a group that wants to participate. Can we register as a team? Absolutely! Just select “Create a team” or “Join a team” on the registration website.
Can I complete the run / walk with a group? Yes! We even have an award for most team members, so spread the word and gather your posse!
Do I have to complete the distance all at once or can I break it up over multiple days? Split it up if you'd like!
When will I receive my swag in the mail? Depending on when you register, your swag items be mailed out a couple weeks before the event starts or shortly after. You'll even receive an email notification when it's been shipped.
Do the medals come with a ribbon? Yes, indeed! Every medal comes with a matching ribbon so you can wear or hang your bling!
I don’t live in the US or Canada, can I still participate? Sure can! While not eligible for prizes, participants outside of the US and Canada can join the fun and win awards with our digital package.
I have an APO/FPO address, can I signup for a swag registration? Affirmative! We're stoked to send swag packages to our military service members and their families overseas. (Note: Transit times are in the hands of USPS mail delivery and may vary by location.)
How can I sponsor this event? Thanks for asking! Please send us an email to email@example.com.
Due to the upfront nature of event costs, we cannot offer refunds, transfers, or deferrals. We also cannot exchange t-shirt sizes. Make sure that you are good to go when you sign up! All sales are 100% final.
