Food Lifeline encourages everyone to take home this nutritious food. We are all struggling during this crisis, and no one should hesitate to accept this help.
Food Lifeline will distribute emergency food boxes at Northgate Mall and North Bend Outlet Mall, as well as two Food Lifeline locations and Bellevue College
Food Lifeline will distribute several thousand emergency food boxes to anyone needing help keeping food on the table during this crisis. The distributions will occur at the following locations and times:
Bellevue College – 3000 Landerholm Circle S.E. Bellevue, 98007 (Main entrance off 148th St.) Friday, May 22, 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Northgate Mall – 401 Northeast Northgate Way, Seattle, Wa. 98125 (Nordstorm Rack parking lot) Tuesday, May 19th, at 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
North Bend Outlets – 461 South Fork Avenue S.W., North Bend, Wa. 98045 Thursday, May 21th, at 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
Food Lifeline – 815 South 96th Street, Seattle, Wa. 98108 (Two (2) this week) Wednesday, May 20th, at 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. & Friday, May 22, 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
These emergency food boxes each contain 22-25 lbs of shelf-stable food items like canned fruits and vegetables, canned meats, non-meat protein items, and bread and grains. They will also contain some fresh produce items that tend to have a longer shelf life. Those wishing to take home boxes can receive a drive-up no-touch distribution, and there will also be walk-up distribution. ANYONE can have access to this food. This is a confidential distribution, so there will be no paperwork or qualification. Food Lifeline is only asking for zip codes to track its efforts. Food Lifeline encourages everyone to take home this nutritious food. We are all struggling during this crisis, and no one should hesitate to accept this help. https://foodlifeline.org/free-food-at-local-malls-this-week/
