We Are Making A Real Impact!  We have already raised over $105,000!
All Challengers Support Local Pacific Northwest Food Banks and Hunger Relief Programs

Donations support local Pacific Northwest food banks and hunger relief programs to help people who are in dire need of food. Before Covid-19, 1 in 9 Americans struggled with food insecurity. As a result of Covid-19, food insecurity is expected to double worldwide. Our NEW goal is to raise $150,000 to support local Pacific Northwest food banks and hunger relief programs.

Gorgeous BLING For All Challengers!

What Is Food Insecurity?

What is food insecurity?

Food insecurity describes a household’s inability to provide enough food for every person to live an active, healthy life. Food insecurity is one way we can measure and assess the risk of hunger. In the United States currently one in nine people struggle with hunger.

 

What causes food insecurity?

One "bad month" can be enough to plunge a household into food insecurity. Layoffs at work, unexpected car maintenance or an accident on the job can suddenly force a family to choose between buying food and paying bills. A global pandemic can dramatically heighten this vulnerability. 

That’s why many working families, including thousands of households who don’t qualify for federal nutrition assistance, depend on local food banks to help make ends meet during difficult times.
