2018 Kids’ Café Meal Program

Below is an inspiring letter from Kristin Foley about the success of this summer’s Kids’ Café Meal Program. It is awesome what a School District and a community can accomplish together!

Dear Kids’ Café Friends:

On behalf of the Snohomish School District, I would like to thank you for your help with this year’s Kids’ Café Summer Meal Program. This summer, more than 183 volunteers (totaling more than 915 volunteer hours) joined us in our effort to feed children and families from our community. We served meals a total of 52 days, and when averaged, we served about 477 meals each day.

Together, we served 8,102 breakfasts and 16,737 lunches (for a total of 24,839 meals) to young people from our community. Of the total meals, 10,813 were served at Snohomish High School (breakfast and lunch). Through the Mobile Kids’ Café:
10,031 breakfasts and lunches were delivered to our local Boys and Girls Club
1,328 lunches went to the Circle H Mobile Home Park
1,261 lunches were distributed at Three Rivers Mobile Home Park
1,406 lunches were served at the Snohomish Aquatic Center

We truly could not have accomplished this without your support and assistance. Your help has allowed us to feed children who may have otherwise gone without.

We hope you enjoyed the experience as much as we enjoyed working with each of you. Our plan is to bring the program back next year for our 10th summer.

Thank you again for your commitment, dedication and for being a part of our Kids’ Café team! Your efforts have directly impacted the lives of many children and families throughout our community.

Sincerely,

Kristin Foley
Director, Communications

Big Al’s Bring & Brag Car Show & BBQ

Every August, Allen “Big Al” Campbell and Janet Towns host one of the best community events in Snohomish: Big Al’s Bring & Brag Car Show & BBQ. This year the hot rods, muscle cars, restomods, rat rods and motorcycles were epic and so was their donation of 850 pounds of food and $2,500 for the food bank! Thank-you Janet and Big Al for your dedication to feeding the hungry in Snohomish!

Evergreen State Fair Food Drive

We love a fair deal and the 8th annual Evergreen State Fair ‘Fair Cares Food Drive’ is one of our favorites. For just 3 cans of food you receive free gate admission on opening day Thursday August 23rd, 10am to 3pm. What a great way to enjoy the fair and support area food banks at the same time!

Teen Movie Night To Benefit The Food Bank

An evening outdoors watching Lake Stevens’ native son, Chris Pratt, save the universe sounds like a cool way to beat this heat! Admission is free and any non-perishable donations will benefit the food bank. Thank-you Snohomish Youth Council!
