Weekend Food Pack Program

NE Tacoma Healthy Kids Coalition

The NE Tacoma Healthy Kids Coalition is a partnership with staff and PTAs from Crescent Heights Elementary, NE Tacoma Elementary, Browns Point Elementary, and Meeker Middle School, along with additional community partners that are focused on providing healthy weekend meals to students in need in our community.  The idea is simple:  a two-day supply of easy-to-prepare food is sent home with eligible students every Friday in their backpacks to ensure they have healthy meals throughout the weekend.

To sign up your child(ren) to receive a weekend food pack please contact our school counselor, Gina Coheley gcoheley@tacoma.k12.wa.us
