Lunch for the Break
Thursday, March 21st - Tuesday, April 2nd
chool breaks are an exciting time for most children. But for some children, school breaks are a time when their family doesn't have enough food. Many children in our community struggle with food insecurity when school is not in session.  Lunch for the Break is working to make sure all Issaquah School District students have enough to eat, even when students are out of school over a long break.
Please help your child’s class reach their goal! Every class that meets their goal will get a treat! Look out for a flyer or check with your child’s classroom to find out what the designated item is for their class.  Please only donate items on the list. Please NO expired or miscellaneous food.
Thank you for helping make this happen! Questions? Please contact Heather Ackermann at
