Power Packs

Family and childhood hunger is a real problem in our community. Some children don't have enough food to eat over the weekend, making Mondays extra challenging.

In response, Issaquah Power Packs works to get weekend food bags into the hands of children who need them.

Are you interested in receiving Power Packs and do your children attend one of the above schools? Contact your child's teacher or the school counselor.

Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank does not know who receives the Packs, only how many are distributed.

Questions?  Email Michelle or call 425-392-4123 x104. 

Issaquah Power Packs currently serves 25 schools in the Issaquah School District:

At the elementary schools, teachers and other staff members help identify children who may be hungry and put a Power Pack in their backpack on Friday afternoons.

At the middle and high schools, students are able to self-select and pick up a Power Pack anytime. The high school Power Packs are put into sling sacks to avoid other students identifying or stigamitizing students who use Power Packs.


You can help our Power Packs program by providing a financial gift to help with purchasing breakfast, lunch, and snacks foods that go into every pack! Your donation goes directly towards this program to help fight childhood food-insecurity and weekend hunger. 

Thank you for your generosity and compassion for children in our commuity!
