Over 5,000 cans & packages donated to food bank this year

We made it!

We really connected with the Rainier Valley Food Bank this year. Orca Teacher Mr. C took the lead with his class to organize “A Kid, A Can, A Month” food drive. This garnered over 5,000 items of food. This is also coupled with hundreds of pounds of organic produce from our garden that we donated too. We love RVFB. This connection to the food bank has been an amazing lesson in poverty, social justice, & food security. Thanks Mr. C and his class for all the hard work of organizing, collecting, and tallying all the food. June 21st is the final day to donate & try and get us to 6,000 before the year ends!

June 21st celebration!
