Despite the fact that schools are closed for summer and potentially fall, hundreds of thousands of students still look to meal programs to get enough to eat. Dairy Farmers of Washington, Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA), and the Seattle Seahawks are working together to support meal providers across the state and prepare schools to serve meals as students head back to school this fall.
We are asking for your help in contributing and spreading the word on social media. 100% of funds raised will go to the GENYOUth For Schools’ Sake campaign to help feed our community’s youth during the summer and fall months. GENYOUth will provide grants to schools and meal providers to purchase supplies for meal distribution and delivery.
Donations up to $50,000 will be matched by Dairy Farmers of Washington with the support of the Seattle Seahawks and WIAA.
