Two Shoreline churches collaborate to provide food for Ridgecrest students

Volunteers packaging weekly bags with donated cereal, soups, milk,
juice, mac 'n cheese boxes, granola bars, fruit packets, etc


City Calvary Chapel and the Shoreline Seventh-day Adventist Church are once again pairing up to supply weekend groceries for 30 selected Ridgecrest Elementary students.

Only prepackaged, individual serving sized items can be used. Food and funds are donated by these church families and by food drives that a Ridgecrest Elementary Girl Scout Troop conduct at Central Market.

Families could go hungry without this program and
the church volunteers who run it.

The food is stored at CCC and packed into bags for delivery to the school.

If you would like to volunteer or donate to this program, contact City Calvary Chapel at 206-709-9416, Heidi Skersies, or the Adventist Church at 206-363-2355 , Jennifer Murphy.

Filling bags with food for hungry Shoreline children

The church volunteers are part of the Food4KidsShoreline. These groups provide food packages to chronically hungry students from low income or homeless households who are at risk of hunger over the weekends when free school meals are unavailable. Every Friday students are discreetly given a bag of food containing easy to prepare foods which is then tucked into their backpacks and brought home.
