Food Frenzy 2024

By: Elisa Mueller

2024 marks the first year that Hauser Jones & Sas is joining forces with other local accounting firms in a friendly competition to support Food Lifeline. As Washington state’s largest hunger relief organization, Food Lifeline is committed to ending hunger in Western Washington. Through a vast network of food pantries, meal programs, and shelters, they served an impressive 233,000 meals every day last year. Hauser Jones & Sas is thrilled to contribute to this impactful cause!

On June 24th, the Hauser Jones & Sas team dedicated their afternoon to volunteering at Food Lifeline’s Hunger Solution Center. Together, we packed over 14,000 pounds of potatoes and 7,000 pounds of canned salmon, helping to provide meals for families across Western Washington.

Food Frenzy, running from July 12th to July 26th, will see us participating in an office food drive and engaging in various fundraising activities, including a cutest pet contest! Our involvement in Food Frenzy is crucial during the summer months when access to school-provided free breakfast and lunch is limited. This forces parents already struggling to make ends meet to choose between groceries, medication, rent, and utilities. Our efforts will significantly impact summer hunger, increasing access to nutritious, culturally relevant food for thousands of families.

We have an exciting array of activities planned for Food Frenzy, all aimed at raising the essential funds needed to stock the shelves of local food pantries and summer meal sites across Western Washington. Last year, the competition raised $620,000, and Hauser Jones & Sas is eager to help surpass that total this year!
