Let NO child go hungry in Tukwila!

  • What: STUFF THE BUS, a community food drive to benefit the Tukwila Weekend SnackPack Program.
  • When: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 25
  • Where: Target in Southcenter, Tukwila
  • Why: Many of our families struggle with hunger, and this is especially true during weekends and holidays when students cannot access free school meals. The Weekend SnackPack Program helps ensure no child goes hungry by providing students without stable housing a backpack full of nutritious food at the beginning of each weekend and school break. The program feeds more than 100 students each weekend/break, and food supplies are critically needed to meet the demand. Please help!
