Food Driving Box Helps This Holiday

Food Driving Box Helps This Holiday 

Seattle is a city that gives. We have a severe homeless problem in Seattle that many are trying to solve. It can feel frustrating and overwhelming to be part of a community in crisis. We seem to struggle to find answers.

One answer is action. Three years ago I started the Food Driving Box program to help make food insecurity in our community top of mind for more people. When people are aware they can't help but act. My neighbors and fellow Seattleites are a compassionate bunch and the Food Driving Box program has made a small impact.

This season I'm spending time getting the word out to invite residents of the Pacific Northwest and elsewhere to use the Food Driving Box program to remind ourselves to give.
