For many of us, the winter holidays are a time to indulge in good food and sweet treats. However, for many students on free and reduced meal plans, the winter holiday represents a time of food insecurity where they don’t know where their next meal will come from while away from school. With the support of 4th grade families, the Student Hunger Service Project will provide food insecure students in Northeast Seattle with food over the winter break.
The 4th grade food drive runs Monday, November 27 – Monday, December 11th. Collection bins are located in each 4th grade classroom and includes Kearney’s, James’, Salisbury’s, and Benaltabe’s split 4th/5th grade class. All food donations are due by December 13. (If you don’t have time to shop, you can donate money towards the HIP food drive and we’ll do the shopping for you on Thursday, December 14). The packing party where food items are assembled into 100 HIP packs will be Friday, December 15 at 7pm in the lunchroom.
Please look for the Kid mail flyer and email from room parents with more details and a SignUp Genius link to donate specific individually wrapped items.
Thank you in advance for your support.
