Seattle Symphony partners with Food Lifeline

The Seattle Symphony is partnering with Food Lifeline for the 16th year to host a food drive during the Messiah concerts on December 18, 19 and 20.

Food Lifeline plays an active role in finding creative solutions to stop hunger in our region, including redirecting good food from manufacturers, farmers, grocery stores and restaurants that might otherwise go to waste. They provide 88,000 meals a day to local food assistance programs, which, combined with their policy work, creates a sustainable approach to stopping hunger. They have 275 members in their food program network that include food banks, food pantries, hot meal programs, shelters and after-school programs.

Food drives are an important source of diverse, non-perishable foods that Western Washington’s food banks rely on every day. We invite you to bring non-perishable and canned food to the performances of Handel’s Messiah on December 18, 19 and 20.

Thanks for joining our efforts to end hunger in our community!
