Kirkland Nourishing Network Needs Your Help to Feed the Neediest of the Needy

Kirkland Nourishing Network is working to help feed some of the "neediest of the needy" in Kirkland elementary schools over the long, holiday school break. The Kirkland Firefighters and even the City Council have stepped up to help, but we need your help to make this happen.

 

Two requests of you:

1. Please take a look at the web site to see if you can help:  http://www2.mysignup.com/cgi-bin/view.cgi?datafile=decemberholidays

2. Please pass this information along to your contacts that aren't already supporting food insecurity in Kirkland this holiday season.

 

The two-week school break is a very long time period for food support for those that are unconnected to existing systems, but we believe Kirkland will step up to this need.  We have had great success in our Summer Feeding program and in the Thanksgiving food boxes.  We are working with Hopelink and Pantry Packs to get connections to on-going support and aid to move to self sufficiency.  That will take a long time, so we are working with existing gaps that have been identified by those that see the needs of these children ever day.

 

This is real need in our community, right now.  You can make an immediate difference in the lives of these children and their families.

 

Thanks for considering these 2 requests.  The first food delivery date is next Monday.
