Announcements

 

 

While our families, students and community partners continue to make the decisions that are in the best interest of their health, we strongly encourage the continued support to those that are most in need. During a health-related outbreak like the COVID-19, we continue to act out of an abundance of caution to protect everyone’s health and well-being.

In an effort to assist families in need during this crisis, we created a services and resource guide. This guide includes programming, meal sites, educational resources, financial assistance and more. These documents are public facing and you are able to edit. Please update with resources you know about and are local to our community.

***We will continue to follow the direction of the Renton School District who is following the guidelines of our local, county and state health officials, the Seattle King County Public Health Department and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).***

RIZP Funding Updates!

 

 

The Albertsons Foundation has awarded the RIZP $50,000 to support our food pantries and continue providing our families access to fresh and healthy food. Additional information on the expansion of our food pantries will be provided at a later time.

 

 

 

Our Fresh Food Pantry Continues!

 

 

The Skyway Fresh Food Pantry will continue on Tuesdays through the end of August. A replacement is in the works for September. Families can expect to pre-order food boxes similar to the ones they've been receiving at the pantry. More details to come soon.
