Have you heard of Lake Washington School Foundation's (LWSF) Pantry Packs program?

The LWSF Pantry Packs program was developed to help the 800 students in the LWSD (including, 160 in Sammamish) who have been identified as food insecure, which means that food in the house is not always a given. Pantry Packs are provided over the weekend to be sure that qualifying students can count on at least one-well rounded meal a day.

If you would like to participate in this program by providing a contribution, please go to feedwashington.org/holidayhungercampaign.

We realize that many families this time of year are being asked for contributions for a number of wonderful organizations, and we appreciate your consideration.

Additional detail on the Pantry Pack program:
Pantry Packs provides weekend packs of food for Lake Washington School District students
who are identified as being “food insecure.” While these students may receive free and
reduced meals during school hours through the federal meal program, they may not have
anything to eat over the weekend. With community donations of kid-friendly food and
funds, 40-50 volunteers come together each month to “pack the packs.” Volunteer drivers
then deliver the packs to schools where the packs get into the hands of hungry children.
Throughout the school year, Pantry Packs demonstrates how volunteers, schools and the
community work together to help hungry children in our school district.
