Kitsap County

Food 4 Kids Award

ESD Region 114, serving the Kitsap and Olympic peninsulas, held its annual Regional Awards Ceremony for  Washington Association of School Administrators. The ceremony honors community leaders in our school districts. This year, NKSD honored Kingston Cares and ShareNet for their vital work providing nutritious meals to students and families in our Kingston area schools weekly and during school breaks.
Kingston Cares Food4kids program, led by Jane Mack, provides and delivers nutritious meals to over 120 Kingston area students who lack access to other food programs during school breaks. Between 2011 and 2022, Food4Kids has provided over 96,300 meals. In 2022 they provided 11,000.
“A child who is hungry, a child whose basic needs are not being met, cannot learn. Kingston Cares and ShareNet in Kingston have been essential to the success of our children. The pandemic highlighted the vital role that these organizations play in supporting our children each and every day,” Dr. Evans shared. “It’s been said many times that schools cannot do it alone, and I am so grateful for these community partners.”
