Luvo Inc., a forward-thinking frozen food company that offers chef-created, nutritionist-approved meals made from high-quality ingredients, teamed up with Hopelink, a Redmond-based action agency that serves homeless and low-income families, children, seniors and people with disabilities in the greater-Seattle area, to donate 900 frozen meals to the Bellevue Food Bank.

Luvo’s CEO Christine Day and several team members were on hand at the Bellevue Food Bank on Dec. 15 to pass out free meals and to provide nutrition education, further supporting the company’s mission of making it easier for people to eat nutritious meals that taste great and are made from real ingredients like fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean meats raised without antibiotics. The 900 meals were donated on behalf of Luvo and brand ambassador Russell Wilson, quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, in efforts to positively impact food insecurity in the Seattle area with this nutritious donation for the greater good.

“Luvo is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Hopelink and to be able to give back to the Seattle community, which is a special place for Luvo and of course our brand ambassador, and Super Bowl champion, Russell Wilson,” said Day.  “Russell joined the Luvo team in the summer of 2015 and has helped us to spark a change in the way consumers eat and think about food, by bringing communities affordable frozen meals that offer full-servings of fruits and veggies, with nourishing whole grains and delicious flavors. Our donations to the Bellevue Food Bank is a great example of these combined efforts.”

Known as a leader on and off the field, Wilson has become an advocate for raising awareness among younger generations about the importance of healthy eating and staying active. In working together, Luvo is dedicated to supporting Wilson’s various volunteer initiatives throughout the year, which includes giving back to the Seattle community in various ways.

“The support and encouragement I have received from the entire Seattle community since joining the Seahawks in 2012 is something I truly cherish and is just one of the reasons why I’m so passionate about giving back,” said Wilson. “With Luvo as a partner, we’re able to teach community members about the importance of nutrition and how eating healthy can positively impact their lives on and off the field, while also making a difference for those who might not have access to healthy meals, through organizations like Hopelink.”

“We were honored to have Christine Day and the rest of the Luvo team here at the Bellevue Food Bank to help personally deliver the meals they are donating to those in need in our community,” said Lauren Thomas, CEO of Hopelink. “Our mission at Hopelink is to promote self-sufficiency and to help people make a lasting change in their lives through education and opportunity. This wonderful donation of 900 meals will support these goals and the people we serve in our great community.”
