This summer, we shared a story about our involvement with Food Lifeline, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing healthy and nutritious food to food banks across Western Washington. On Thursday, October 24, the Blue Fern Homes team packed 6 tons for Food Lifeline. We gathered all of our vendor and contractor partners for an extra-special volunteer event.
We managed to recruit almost 100 amazing volunteers who spent an evening at the Lifeline Hunger Solution Center. Together, we packed over 12,600 pounds of graciously donated kiwi, the equivalent of 12,500 meals.
At Blue Fern, we understand the building communities involves more than just us: it also takes the hard work of our trade partners to build the best homes in the greater Seattle area. We organized this special volunteer event to give back.
It’s hard to believe, but almost 40% of all food produced in the United States is wasted. Meanwhile, some people struggle to put food on the table for their families or feed themselves. Food Lifeline acts as a food bank for food banks all across Western Washington. Some of Food Lifeline’s biggest partners are located in Queen Anne, Shoreline, and Ballard—each of them an area of past or present Blue Fern communities.
We’d like to thank everyone for giving up their Thursday evening to make such a big impact in our community!
Interested in giving back? You can always donate money or your time to Food Lifeline’s initiative. You can also purchase a new home from Blue Fern. A portion of every new home sale goes directly to Food Lifeline’s goal of eradicating food waste and hunger. We’re getting close to the completion of our new townhomes at 42nd Avenue and Holly Townhomes in Seattle and our recently announced 1st Avenue townhomes in Shoreline.
