Schools out and summer is in! Throughout the school year, children who rely on free or reduced price lunch at their schools are suddenly faced with hunger during the summer. Summer Meals is a federal program that tries to address that gap. This year, HIP is running seven summer meals sites throughout north Seattle and Shoreline area. One of our sites is a closed site, meaning it’s not open to everyone, and is located at the Abused Deaf Women’s Advocacy Service (ADWAS) shelter. All other sites (see full list on the right) are open sites and everyone is welcome to any of those.
At HIP, we realize, when a child is hungry, their parents are not getting proper nutrition either. Therefore, at all our sites, we also serve meals for parents. We are grateful to United Way of King County for supporting this program.
Want to Volunteer?
We need many volunteers to prepare the meal, serve them at our seven sites five days a week, organize and lead activities with kids and teens and much more. If you are interested, please contact Stephen at Stephen@HungerIntervention.org or fill out our volunteer form.
In addition to meals, we bring many fun and learning activities throughout the summer at our meal sites, in partnership with other organizations. See the calendar below for more details. Please visit this page again. We are adding more fun activities regularly!
