We at Jefferson recognize that hungry children can't learn. We also understand that families fall on hard times and as a community we care and want to make a difference. One of the ways we do that is that our PTA sponsors a food backpack program. Every Friday we can send a backpack of food home with your child. It's a small way we can help. You can utilize this service short term or all year. We usually serve around 20-25 families.
If you want to access the food backpack program, please contact me at 425-385-7410 or Lortizfirstname.lastname@example.org. There is a form to fill out and as long as their is space, we can usually start sending home a backpack within a week. Your information will be kept private from the pta volunteers. We have them deliver backpacks to your child's classroom without them knowing who is getting the backpack.
