With over 37,700 people in King County filing initial unemployment claims the first week in May, it’s more important than ever to ensure that children in our community are getting the nutrition they need. A nationwide April 2020 COVID Impact Survey showed that one in five households with children 12 and under have children who are currently experiencing food insecurity.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our annual Lake Sammamish Fireworks show to raise funds for children facing food insecurity in our community. Unfortunately, we will not be able to hold our 2020 fireworks display due to safety restrictions. We hope that you will find alternate ways to make your 4th of July celebration special this year and plan to join us for a huge celebration in July of 2021!
Would you please help us continue our long-time commitment to the Summer Lunch Program at the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bankdespite the inability to hold our annual fireworks show? A $100 gift can provide a child with breakfast, lunch and snack foods for an entire month this summer. Please consider giving a gift online:

One of our team's greatest joys is giving back to the community where we live and work and we love being able to join together with you to make an even greater impact.
The Summer Lunch Program through the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank provides breakfast, lunch, and snack foods every week during the summer to school-aged children in the community. With 1,663 children in the Issaquah School District receiving free and reduced price lunches while school is in session, there is a great need to help prevent childhood food insecurity during the summer months when children do not have access to school lunches.
Thank you for joining us in supporting our neighbors to maintain a healthy, thriving community!
