To make Seattle a city that works for everyone, we need to be prepared to listen and ready to implement change. I’m proud to be a part of what Bank of America is helping accomplish.

Let’s build something together

Seattle is a socially conscious city, and that commitment is at the heart of everything we do. When the pandemic struck, we immediately mobilized support for those most impacted. Initiatives included working with affordable housing partners to address two pressing challenges—combating food insecurity among hard-hit local residents, and supporting small businesses. The result was a program that delivered food prepared by local restaurants to those in need. We also funded groups that provide childcare, giving flexibility to essential workers. For the future, we’re focused on improving access to great jobs. This includes helping students of color overcome the barriers they often face in completing their studies. Above all, we want to use our resources to give everyone a voice, helping ensure that all community leaders have a place at the table to share their insights.

Getting people back to work—and helping food banks in the process

Across the country, nonprofits are innovating ways to enable people who are unemployed find work again —while combating food insecurity. FareStart of Seattle, WA, is part of a national network of food industry and social enterprises called Catalyst Kitchens, which received a $200,000 Bank of America grant. In the Seattle area, the funds helped FareStart distribute more than 200,000 emergency meals and employ more than 150 individuals furloughed in the restaurant industry.
