We Must Help the Hungry Children of Our State
There are plenty of controversial societal problems for us to debate, but feeding hungry kids isn’t one of them. Every day we allow this to go on is a day we’re not living up to our responsibility to the 300,000 kids in our communities who can’t take care of themselves.
How We Will Solve Childhood Hunger
Feed Washington is solving childhood hunger one school, one neighborhood, one child at a time.
The process is simple:
- We go into an area (it could be a neighborhood, a school district, or an individual school) and work with the people who are already on ground level feeding kids to determine the number of hungry kids in that area, and then
- We reach out to the businesses, the students and alumni of the schools, and the current residents in that area to create a recurring donation stream sufficient to ensure all of the children in that area are fed on an ongoing basis.
We started in Ballard, Washington and we are currently in the middle of a campaign in the Lake Washington School District. Once we're done in the LWSD, we will continue across the state until no child in Washington is hungry.
What Amount Won’t You Notice?
Feed Washington doesn’t ask you to give until it hurts. Instead, give the amount you won’t notice on your credit card or bank statement each month. So, what amount won’t you notice? $5? $10? $50? Don’t worry if you are only able to donate a small amount; every dollar is important as we move toward our goal.
Let’s Solve Childhood Hunger Once and For All
With childhood hunger, we have a tremendous opportunity that doesn’t exist with most other societal ills: we can quickly solve it and move on. We don’t have to come up with a cure, invent something, or debate whether or not feeding kids is a good idea. Let’s not hope someone else does it, wait for our politicians to find the will to do it, or ignore it and hope it goes away. Let’s solve childhood hunger now and then put our collective attention to the next, most vulnerable group that needs our help.
