Breakfast After The Bell

We are so happy ‘Breakfast After the Bell’ HB 1508 passed the Washington State legislature. It is estimated an additional 25,000 children will be able to receive a free or reduced-price breakfast each day. What a positive impact this will make!

Employees Community Fund of Boeing

How much do we love the Employees Community Fund of Boeing? Their grant will allow us to provide milk to every family each week until the end of March. Milk is a staple our clients always look forward to so this is something to celebrate!

Infant Program

There are some necessities that SNAP benefits don’t cover. Diapers are one of them. Fortunately, with the support of our generous community and the Snohomish Kiwanis, we are able to provide infant bags full of diapers, nutritious food and even formula to clients each week. Just last month we distributed 110 bags! Our infant program is one of the most important services we provide and our families appreciate it so much. A big thank you to our lovely volunteer Pat who sorts and stocks your donations to make sure our littlest clients are happy and healthy!
