Each fall we collect non-perishable food from our neighbors for Northwest Harvest. Each year we aim at bringing in at least 1000 pounds of food.
Our students in grades 6-8 volunteer at the Northwest Harvest warehouse in Kent several times throughout the year. Northwest Harvest supplies food to all the food banks in Washington State.
The kids really enjoy the opportunity to both meet our neighbors and help out those in need.
This year Mrs. Bienhoff’s class brought in the most food. Nice job 1st and 2nd graders! School-wide we collected 587.5lbs of food plus what the upper-graders collected from our neighbors.
