Kirkland Food Boxes — Mid-Winter Break 2019
Tuesday, February 12, 8:30AM to Noon
Already signed up? Here’s a link to the Shopping List.
Thank you for helping some of our Kirkland school children and their families over Mid-Winter Break (when kids don’t receive their school breakfast/lunch)!
We work with school counselors to identify the most food-insecure students and families. Simply put, Kirkland Nourishing Network is trying to fill some gaps in food security in our town….while we also seek more sustainable solutions for these kids and their families.
Kirkland Nourishing Network is YOU and your neighbors pitching in. Together we can make this a success well beyond what any one of us could do alone. So, PLEASE tell your friends about this project. We are striving to help families in EVERY KIRKLAND SCHOOL THAT HAS A NEED. All elementary schools, and the North location is also serving Kamiakin and Finn Hill middle schools, and Juanita High.
We believe in you. We believe in the hundreds of people who will step up and say, “I’ll bring a box.” If you can’t commit to a whole box, ask a friend or two to join with you to put a box together.
The Winter Break food box drop off is on Tuesday, February 12, 8:30AM to Noon. There are two sites: the NORTH site is at the LDS Church at 13220 NE 132nd Street in Kingsgate; the SOUTH site is at the LDS Church at 7720 126th Avenue NE in South Rose Hill. You can pick the site most convenient for you, but if all the boxes are signed up for at that site please do check the other site as well.
