Northshore NN

In 2009 a small, thoughtful group of committed citizens convened and began a new kind of community-wide conversation with the goal of ending student hunger in the Northshore School District. Ordinary people rolling up their sleeves and saying, “Yes, count me in” has deep roots in our society. It reflects the power that each of us has to improve the world in big and small ways, and compels us to harness the power of community to make those improvements possible. Northshore community members are working collaboratively through their churches, schools, PTAs, businesses, and service organizations to help fill the hunger gaps. Talents are shared, relationships are created, and bonds are strengthened. Please come to our next meeting to learn more and help make the network stronger. 

 


Upcoming activities

An exploration of the food stability resources currently available for Cascadia Community College and UW Bothell students.


Get Involved

In Northshore we share what we know and give our time to help weave a bigger and stronger net to help fill the gaps that often leave people hungry.    We meet regularly and welcome everyone who is interested in contributing their time, talent, and energy.  

Here are some of the programs currently in place:  

  • Hopelink Food Bank in Kenmore. Northlake Lutheran Church offers a satellite Hopelink Food Bank on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. Contact the Hopelink Kirkland/Northshore Center at 425-889-7880 to make a registration appointment.
  • Totes to Go backpacks for kids.  A number of churches, the Northshore YMCA, and several schools have collaborated to provide a weekly backpack of non-perishable food items for kids, and for the families who have enrolled with the Northshore Community Kitchen.
  • Northshore Community Kitchen.  A joint PTSA/YMCA program that provides a free, once-a-week, ready-to-eat meal to up to 15 Northshore families.  Enrollment is either through a Northshore School District Nurse or by contacting Sue Freeman at suefree7@hotmail.com   To see the Kitchen in action, please click here to view our Youtube video
