Ways We Help

We have several seasonal programs we run at the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank. These include the Summer Lunch Program, Tools 4 School, Holiday Gift Barn, Lunch for a Break, Issaquah Power Packs, Tuxes and Tiaras, Birthday Toy Bank, and Dental Van.

Holiday Gift Barn:

  • Pickering Barn is turned into a department store for a week in December, allowing families in the Issaquah School District to shop and choose gifts for their children

  • Gift wrapping and child care is available to help parents keep gifts a secret until Christmas Day.

Lunch For the Break:

  • The program runs during Winter Break, Mid-Winter Break and Spring Break each school year.

  • Helping to bridge the food gap during long school breaks, Lunch for the Break provides a box of food for each school age child in a family.

Summer Lunch Program:

  • Provides a week’s worth of breakfast, lunch and snacks for school age kids in our Food Bank zip codes

  • Families receive one bag of food per school-age child

Tools 4 School:

  • Provides a new backpack filled with new school supplies for kids in the Issaquah School District

  • Backpacks and supplies are chosen to provide a variety of styles and colors to choose from

Issaquah Power Packs:

  • Provides a weekend bag of kid-friendly food to help end weekend hunger in Issaquah schools

  • Each child in a family receives a bag every Friday at school - ask your teacher or counselor for a Power Pack today!

Tuxes and Tiaras:

  • This fun and festive program provides dresses, tuxedos, shoes and accessories for dances in the Issaquah School District

  • This event is open to all students attending a dance in the Issaquah School District
