School breaks are an exciting time for most children. Time away from school and homework. The opportunity to sleep in late and stay up late. To celebrate with family and play with friends.
But for some children, school breaks are a time when their family doesn't have enough food. Many children in our community struggle with food insecurity when school is not in session.
Lunch for the Break is working to make sure all Issaquah School District students have enough to eat, even when school is not in session.
Lunch for the Beak provides a free box of grocery items for each student in the family that can be used to make breakfast, lunch and snacks. Each box is filled according to a specific shopping list, so all boxes are the same. To get a feel for the shopping experience, check out a video made by local high school students!
