WHO WE ARE
At Tukwila Weekend SnackPack, we believe everyone has the right to food, water, and shelter.
So, in 2014, we knew we had to respond to the sharp increase of students in our community challenged with hunger & housing insecurity.
Leading with our mission, support students overcome food insecurity while unhoused, Tukwila Weekend SnackPack provides shelf stable-kid friendly meals for the weekend to students in Tukwila.
As a result of our work, students return to school able to focus on their academic goals, which contributes to higher graduation outcomes, improving the likelihood of food & housing stability in the future.
We embrace diversity, inclusion and equity in deep and transformative ways. We aspire to be inclusive in the way that we engage and learn from board, staff, and community leaders, and to model our commitment to diversity, inclusion, and equity in all that we do.
We are responsive and flexible. We build relationships. We meet people where they are and listen to people’s lived experiences to effectively address community needs.
We make a difference. Changing lives, one meal a time.
We are better together. We collectively co-create solutions in service for each other. We appreciate the gifts, strengths, and community cultural wealth from our youth, neighbors, and each other.
CHANGING LIVES, ONE MEAL AT A TIME
