Food insecurity affects one in four children in Pierce County. To address the problem of hunger in the community, we have partnered with Fred Meyer, Mountain View Community Center, Pilgrim Lutheran Church, Cornerstone Community Church, All Saints Catholic Church, Backpack Kids, and High Pointe Community Church to provide backpacks of food for students at Dessie Evans, Karshner, Stewart, Firgrove, Woodland, Pope, and Sunrise Elementary.

Every Friday Site Coordinators distribute these backpacks of food to support the students over the weekend and holidays when school meal programs are not available.
