Lake City-based Hunger Intervention Program (HIP) works to bring food to local families and now seniors through its Healthy HIP Packs Program, meal programs, and by advocating for our hungry neighbors.
Five sites in the Lake City/NE Seattle area are now open for kids and teens to visit all summer long to enjoy free meals and snacks. On top of that free activities, games, reading and more are offered at each site. The overall goal is to provide fun meal sites that make sure kids get the nutrition they need while out of school and get in all the fun play time that a summer should be filled with.
Lake City nonprofit, Hunger Intervention Program, runs four meal sites in the neighborhood. All meals are made fresh by HIP volunteers. To see specific hours and locations, visit HIP’s blog. Families can check out the weekly menu there too.
Summer meals are also a great place for volunteering. If you would like to help prepare meals, help out at a meal site or lead kids in your favorite activity this summer, sign up to volunteer with HIP this summer at HIP’s website or contact Julia at (206) 457-2871. We still need many volunteers at our meal sites and are looking for volunteers to drive our meals to sites.
