As rents skyrocket in Kitsap County, more families than ever are struggling to afford even basic needs. Through our innovative Food to Grow On program, you can help families in Kitsap County receive nutritious food every week.

Here’s how it works: on Friday, at all local schools, kids in the Food to Grow On program visit their school office. There they receive healthy meals and snacks to eat over the weekend.

Every $20 you give provides backpacks full of food for one hungry child for each week for a month.

Make your donation recur monthly to help families all year long!

“Thank you for your support this year! Our students truly benefited from the program. I know it will impact them for life. Providing food increases connectedness to our school, increases attendance, and increases positive attitudes. You have helped our future generations!”

— A Kingston Middle School teacher
