|About the Organization||
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.
The Donor Relations Director is responsible for leading the efforts to operationalize a relationship management strategy across the organization to build a movement to end hunger. This position directly oversees the individual giving team and is responsible for the strategic execution and management of a comprehensive giving program, including the oversight of supporting initiatives in the areas of donor and development services to build the capacity to effectively and consistently engage the organization's stakeholders.
