Snacks for a Successful School Day
Tuesday, March 1, 2022
This school year, the Bellevue School District Family Connections Centers have requested more healthy snack donations for students than ever before. Snack pack donations help ensure students have the nutrition they need for a successful school day. They are given to students who come to school on an empty stomach or return home to empty pantries. Snack packs keep students from experiencing food insecurity.
Thanks to our caring community, since the start of school in September 2021, we have coordinated the donation and delivery of over 3,782 snack packs for Bellevue students — along with hygiene, food, and warm clothing donations. These donations come at a crucial time when nearly 3,900 students in the district are experiencing food insecurity.
We are inspired by the Bellevue community members and businesses who stepped up to collect, package and deliver much-needed snack packs to help meet this need.
