Families across Western Washington are busy preparing their children for the school year with new notebooks, pencils, pens, and backpacks…
But by far the most important school supply is plenty of healthy food.
Thankfully, countless children are headed back to school ready to learn because you made sure they had nutritious meals on the table all summer long. I hope you’ll enjoy reading about some of your neighbors who are living better lives because of your generosity in our newsletter, At the Table.
Please don’t miss the story of Sergio and his grandfather, Lanny, on the back cover. Together, they’re giving to others, in thanks for what you’ve given them. Through those you impact, your gifts keep giving.
It’s only with your ongoing support that together we can connect hungry neighbors with nutritious meals. With the return of school, many children will once again be able to eat free or reduced–price meals in the cafeteria, but their families will need our help filling their plates on weeknights, weekends, and holidays.
We know that good nutrition is vital to students’ success — even a short amount of time without healthy food can cause behavioral issues and developmental delays.
That’s why I’m so thankful for friends like you who choose — again and again — to stand with children and families in the fight against hunger. Your support strengthens our entire community! Thank you.
