Hopelink’s grassroots End Summer Hunger campaign raises critical resources that allow Hopelink’s five Food Markets to provide nutritious, kid-friendly daytime meals, bridging the gap for families who rely on school-sponsored meals during the academic year. With your support, we can ensure no child goes without this summer.

About the Campaign

As school bells ring for the final time this summer, many children look forward to sun-soaked days spent outside with friends. But for more 17,730 children in King County who depend on free or reduced-fee school meal programs, summer brings about the uncertainty of not having access to regular, nutritious meals. For their parents, this presents the challenge of affording additional meals throughout the summer months – especially as grocery prices continue to soar.  

Every day, our neighbors visit Hopelink’s five Food Markets to shop for groceries that are fresh, culturally relevant, and most importantly – free. By donating directly or starting a food or fund drive, you can help ensure that families come away with more than just a cart full of groceries this summer – but a renewed sense of dignity and hope, knowing that they are not alone and can count on the Hopelink community during these difficult times. Will you help us End Summer Hunger in our community?
