Thank you, community!
An estimated 2,000 middle and high school students in Spokane do not know if they will have enough to eat on weekends during the school year. Second Harvest and At The Core partner with schools and community organizations to get weekend food supplies to hungry teens through Bite2Go XL.
Because Bite2Go proved successful and necessary at the elementary level, the program expanded in 2016 to serve middle and high school students. The Bite2Go XL food kits feature larger portions to accommodate higher caloric needs of older youth. Students choose from a menu of a variety of non-perishable items that they can prepare with basic cooking skills—with or without access to a full kitchen. Bite2Go XL sets itself apart from other middle and high school hunger-relief programs based on the core values of dignity, respect, anonymity and choice.
