Our annual Feed Your Brain program fights summer learning loss and summertime hunger by funding summer literacy programs in rural Washington State and connecting those programs to the Summer Food Service Program. This gives children in the most isolated and high-poverty areas of Washington access to quality summer programming and meals they might otherwise never have.
Help us raise $10,000 to fund two more summer programs this year – programs we would otherwise be unable to fund. That would be like feeding four whole classrooms of children and giving them a chance to start the school year on track in September.
21st Century Community Learning Centers would could lose their funding if the current version Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) passes. MOre than 18,000 children in Washington depend on 21st CCLCs for afterschool and summer programming.
