Snohomish High School Partners with Dream Dinners to Host “Fight Against Hunger” Event
More than 1,300 volunteers participated in meal packaging event
The event was hosted in the Snohomish High School auxiliary gym, where organizers and students were able to package more than 150,000 meals after raising a total of $55,000 leading up to the event. Approximately 50,000 meals stayed in Snohomish County to help those in need through VOA and local schools; the remainder will go to Haiti. A portion of the funds raised also went to the Snohomish Food Bank to help support their efforts. Snohomish High School teacher Ben Doucette’s advanced marketing class organized this year’s event.
"We’re very lucky to have a partner like Snohomish High School. Dream Dinners was founded to make life easier for families everywhere, and as part of that vision we have a deep commitment to the communities we serve, and that includes our own backyard,”" said Tina Kuna, co-founder of Dream Dinners.
"Our goal is to continue to partner with additional schools to make good on our mission to grow great kids and educate the next generation to positively impact their communities locally and globally."
More than 25 local businesses donated to help make the event happen. Donations from organizations including the Snohomish Kiwanis, SYSCO, Not Yet Foundation, Harvey's Airport, Mountain View Community Church, and others made this event possible.
