Bellevue, WA – October 26th, 2020 – Virtuosity Consulting, the business and technology consulting firm, celebrated today the completion and tallied results of their September virtual food drive, which raised $4100 for Food Lifeline.
Last month, Virtuosity partnered with Seattle non-profit Food Lifeline in efforts to help fight food insecurity in Washington State, which has been on the rise following the outbreak of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Through their GoFundMe campaign, Virtuosity collected and raised funds with the help of employees, vendors, clients, and members of the community, pledging to match total donations.
Virtuosity’s team and affiliates raised $2,050, which was then matched by the company for a total donation of $4100; these funds will provide up to 20,500 meals for families in Washington State.
“We’re beyond excited to have exceeded our goal for our virtual food drive. We’re very grateful to our employees, affiliates and the other members of our community who came together to support this effort,” say Brent Lazarenko and Chris Fuller, Managing Partners at Virtuosity. “We are proud to support Food Lifeline and hope that our campaign has not only made an impact on those who utilize local food banks, but also encouraged others who regularly support and fundraise to do what they can in this time of high need.”

About Food Lifeline
Founded in 1979, Food Lifeline’s mission is to feed people experiencing hunger today and work to end hunger for tomorrow. We believe that access to food is a human right. Our goal is to address hunger in our region by feeding people who are facing hunger each day and at the same time addressing the root causes of hunger. It is our firm belief that nobody deserves to be hungry and ending hunger is possible.
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Food Lifeline had to quickly adapt to dramatically increased demand for food. For perspective, we serve 700,000 people in Washington in a typical month. With the economic hardship caused by the pandemic, the number of food-insecure people in our state has doubled to 1.6 million people with a high likelihood that it could reach more than 2 million people before the crisis begins to subside.
