Time for Kirkland Nourishing Network Food Box Donations for Mid-Winter Break!

 

 

Kirkland Nourishing Network is trying to bring to light some gaps in food security, right here in our community. We’ve made it pretty simple for you to be a solution to fill gaps identified by teachers and school counselors. You shop for a box of food (menu provided) and drop off the box at a central site on February 9.  That evening the box is in the home of a family that really needs it.  Each box is under $50 with a standard menu of items.

 

Everything you need to know is on the sign-up link below.  The key thing to realize is that you can make a real difference in the lives of Kirkland neighbors.

 

We've expanded this year to ALL Kirkland elementary schools with identified need. That means we need donors for over 200 boxes of food – helping over 150 families! 

 

Here's the website with links for signup at both north and south drop locations:

We aren't set up to take cash, but we might be able to make connections with members of the Eastside Timebank or a youth group to shop for a limited number of those that would not otherwise be able to donate. Send any requests for this assistance to daveasher@comcast.net

 

A special thanks to the Kirkland Kiwanis Club for providing funds this year to help add some protein to the boxes on drop-off day.
