Weekend Food for Kids works with schools in Queen Anne and Magnolia to provide extra food for students on weekends when free and reduced price school meals are not available.  

In partnership with Queen Anne Helpline, Ballard Food Bank, and Queen Anne Presbyterian Church participating students receive pre-packed bags of nonperishable food items containing the equivalent of seven meals and snacks; fresh fruit is included. Perishable items (yogurt, string cheese, hummus) are also available. The bags are delivered to school for students to take home over the weekend.

Participation in the program is completely confidential.

To sign up, please return this form to Assistant Principal Mr. Berkenwald OR to the front office.  Once your child starts the program, he/she will receive a bag each week during the school year or until you no longer wish to participate.  If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Berkenwald at (206) 252-2109 or mlberkenwald@seattleschools.org.

For more information about the program, call the Queen Anne Helpline at (206) 282-1540.

The Queen Anne Helpline is a nonprofit organization that provides basic need assistance for people living in Queen Anne, Magnolia and South Lake Union; this assistance includes rent and utility payment assistance, an emergency food pantry and a clothing bank.
