Bellevue Nourishing Network aims to fill the existing gaps that leave people hungry by weaving together the efforts, stories, and ideas of individual and organizational networks; employ the skills, tools and resources to sustain community-driven problem solving and network weaving over time.
The organizations that currently work to ease hunger in Bellevue do as much as they can, and still there are increasing numbers of our neighbors who fall through the net woven by non-profits and government. We also know that many community members are tirelessly doing their part working through churches, schools and local hunger-relief organizations to help fill the gaps, yet the need still continues. These challenging times require us to link all efforts, share what we know and give our time to weave a bigger and stronger net that will hold the abundance that can nourish us all.
Here’s a sampling of the diversity of organizations and groups represented in our network and a snapshot of some areas of focus.
HopeLink, Bellevue School District Student Services and Family Connection Centers, Bellevue Boys and Girls Club, Salvation Army (they will be joining us at the next meeting-yay!), Renewal Food Bank, Farmer Frog, Eastside Baby Corner, different faith organizations, Bellevue College and City of Bellevue.
