Lunch for the Break

Lunch for the Break is a community-wide program supporting children, grades K-12, within the Issaquah School District. This program helps alleviate hunger by providing a week's worth of free grocery items for students to be able to prepare breakfast, lunch, and snacks for themselves.  

Do you need extra help with food for your school-aged children during the mid-winter break?

In line with our current COVID-19 safety protocols, Lunch for the Break will take place at the front door of the food bank on Friday, February 11, between 11 am-4 pm. Registration is required! 

Once registered, you will receive a pickup time to help reduce wait times and keep our community safe.
