A&M Insurance wants to help our local kids. So every year we have a Close the Meal Gap food drive to help our local kids.
This year from June 1st thru July 1st, 2018 we will be collecting donations for Northwest Harvest.
Children throughout our state will begin summer vacation in June. Although children look forward to the fun and freedom that time out of school brings, for a surprising number it also means missing meals. This is very concerning as mild malnutrition during the critical growth periods of childhood can stunt growth and impair brain development.
In fact, Renton School District reports show 4,027 or 57% of elementary students as of last February were on the free or reduced lunch program. Many working families rely on these meal programs and are left struggling during the summer months to feed their children.
Northwest Harvest can use any nonperishable food or monetary donations. Did you know Northwest Harvest can feed a family of three one nutritious meal for just 67 cents? DONATE here. We have set a $ goal of $500.
