Low income kids in Kirkland know they will receive a meal every day when school is in session. This meal helps make the difference between being nourished for the day or going to bed hungry. With school breaks coming up, Rotary wanted to make sure families in need had a little extra in the coming weeks.
Many club members, including President Steve Shinstrom, helped to purchase and box food at the Shinstrom offices in the hopes of putting together eleven boxes of food. However, with the kind giving of many, 21 boxes of food were prepared for distribution. In addition to the food, gift cards were included to round out the menu items for each family. This food was delivered to Nourishing Network as part of their effort to feed hungry Kirkland kids during Mid-Winter Break and we were happy to be a part of that.
