They aim to provide nutritious meals and snacks to every homeless student attending Seattle Public School. This includes children in families who are temporarily housed or living in shelters, tent-cities or cars.

fighting COVID-19 with our partners
We are proud to continue to support Northwest Harvest, a partner since 2013. In coordination with other hunger relief organizations, they are using more mobile units to deliver ready-to-eat meals, shelf stable food boxes and emergency food boxes to communities throughout Washington. To adhere to COVID-19 restrictions and safety requirements, they converted the SODO Community Market into a curbside grocery bag pick-up facility. Northwest Harvest also serves as an essential community resource, providing information for those in need of food and for those wanting to help.
