Weekend Food Backpack Program

  • The food backpack program is a partnership between Hawthorne Elementary School and Bethany Christian Assembly.

    Each week, volunteers pack food for the weekend for Hawthorne families. Students take the food home in red rolling backpacks, which go home on Fridays and must be brought back the following Monday to get filled up again. Up to 50 students can be served each week.

    If you would like to sign up for your family, please contact the Family Support Specialist at 425-385-4610. You can also talk to the main office or your child's teacher. If the program is full, your name will be put on the waiting list.
