Kirkland Nourishing Network is working to fill some gaps in food security, right here in our community. We’ve made it simple for you to be part of the solution to fill the gaps identified by teachers and school counselors. If you volunteer to shop for a box of food and drop off the box at a central site on Thursday, December 15, that evening the box will be in the home of a family that really needs it. Each box is under $50 with a standard menu of items.
Kirkland has stepped up to fill the need every school break for the past 5 years. You can make a real difference in the lives of Kirkland neighbors! We’re helping families in ALL Kirkland elementary schools with identified need. That means we need donors for over 400 boxes of food! Some neighbors struggle more than we appreciate; but, together, we can help to fill the need…
