Supporting Our Youth Feeding Programs

You might have noticed we’ve refreshed the name of our event to illuminate why we hold it every year and why your participation is so important. More than 1,800 children in the Issaquah School District who receive free or reduced-price school lunches don’t have access to these resources when school is out. Our Summer Lunch, Lunch for the Break, and Power Packs programs play a vital role in ensuring children have easy access to healthy food at all times.

The annual fireworks show has raised an amazing $290,000 since 2015 to support childhood nutrition in our community. Last year alone, our community came together to help raise over $58,000, which provided breakfast, lunch, and snack foods for over 550 children for an entire month. With your help and our partnership with The Kritsonis & Lindor Team at Windermere Real Estate, hundreds of children will be ensured sufficient nutrition every day of the year.
In these times of rising costs and reduced SNAP benefits, we need your help more than ever. Please join us as we raise funds to continue supporting our youngest citizens.

A gift of $150 can provide 21 children with breakfast, lunch, and snack foods for the weekend when school lunches aren’t available.

Double your impact!
The Kritsonis & Lindor Team will match donations of $150 or greater up to $20,000 in contributions.
