Since its inception in 1982, Seattle’s premier food festival has successfully retained a connection to the community by raising funds for local charities and once again, the Bite teams up with some of Western Washington’s most notable charity organizations to retain a connection to the community.
Food Lifeline, a primary partner with the Bite, benefits from the event in a number of ways. Diners who drop in on the long-standing Bite favorite, The Alley hosted by Tom Douglas, will contribute a portion of their $10 Alley admission toward Food Lifeline’s mission to end hunger.
