  1. I’d love to see how much is eaten vs. thrown in the garbage.

  2. Oh dear, Joy. What a sad commentary/reaction ;(

  3. Go to the school and see yourself. It is a sad commentary.

  4. I am so pleased that our community is committed to helping ensure that our children receive at least one meal a day. Childhood hunger is heartbreaking.

    • Based on the latest stats Edmonds median income per household is 73,072. 71% home ownership and 9. Poverty level. What does that mean? Not a lot of poverty here. Now statistically, how many of the 9. Percent of the children come for the meals?? Go see.

  5. Yes, thank you for the suggestion. I will “go see” and “go help” as well. One hungry child is one hungry child too many. There are 150 homeless children in our school district. I am sure they will appreciate the meals.

    • I am glad your volunteering it is an eye opening adventure.

  6. This isn’t about “adventure “…….across the United States one out of five is going hungry…….right now…….Again, the measure of a great and civlised nation is how it treats its most vulnerable. It is shameful that any child should be hungry…….or anybody for that matter. Edmonds has plenty of these children…..sad Dorothea Lange 1930s dustbowl images come to mind when seeing some of these children…..a picture is worth a thousand words

  7. I’m not debating whether Edmonds has poor children, and no we aren’t currently like the “dust bowl” era. I wonder how we can really get to those children that really need food. Volunteering really opens your eyes. Most of those that need the food do not go to the schools for free lunch. I urge all to check it out….it’s your tax dollars, don’t you want to see if it works? Or are you justifying giving our tax dollars enough? Volunteer and see you may be pleasantly surprised.
