Northshore Schools Foundation starts lunch fund

Students on free and reduced lunch can look forward to receiving meals during school closures.

The Northshore Schools Foundation has launched a fund to provide the district assistance during the COVID-19 response.

Since the school district announced the closing of all schools for up to two weeks due to COVID-19, families, students, teachers and staff are transitioning to online learning.

“In continuation of our commitment to build partnerships to amplify the work of the district, this Community Response Fund is established to collect and distribute funds in times of need,” the Northshore Schools Foundation said on its website. “Funds raised through this portal will be overseen by a committee of Northshore Schools Foundation members and members of the Northshore School District Safety & Security Committee. Funding use will be reported back to donors for full transparency.”

The Northshore Schools Foundation’s Community and District Response Program will support scholarships for childcare, cleaning and sanitizing of physical spaces, staff training and technology access.
