Following its 2024 Minority Business Economic Forum in Seattle, NMSDC donated 500 meals to local nonprofit, Food Lifeline. The donation is part of a commitment to giving back to the communities that host its signature events.

Food Lifeline is a Seattle-based nonprofit working to end hunger in Western Washington. It believes that access to food is a basic human right and that nobody deserves to be hungry. The organization provides nutritious food to 1.37 million people facing hunger by sourcing nutritious food from various food industry partners. It distributes this food through a network of 350 food banks, shelters, and meal programs, enabling it to provide more than 282,000 meals daily.

At the same time, it works to end hunger for the future by addressing its root causes, including poverty, racial inequity, and social injustice. Food Lifeline does this through advocacy efforts to shape local, state, and federal policy, by partnering with organizations addressing other causes of poverty, and through engagement and bundling food assistance with other community-based programs and services.
