A Bit of Background

Northeast Tacoma Healthy Kids Coalition at a Glance

The NE Tacoma Healthy Kids Coalition is a partnership with staff and PTAs from Crescent Heights Elementary, NE Tacoma Elementary, Browns Point Elementary, Meeker Middle, and Stadium High School along with additional community partners that is focused on providing weekend meals to students and other basic needs supports to students in need in our community.  Students receiving assistance from the NE Tacoma Healthy Kids Coalition are identified by the principal and counseling team at each participating school.   Confidentiality is an essential value of the program.  The Coalition does not keep a wait list, and has expanded to serve every student identified by school staff as needing food assistance.

How You Can Help

We need you!  We could not meet the basic needs of our local students without community support.  We are looking for volunteers and for food donations and financial contributions on a monthly basis.

Home: What We Do

Donate your time

The Coalition has monthly volunteer opportunities to help pack and deliver weekend meal bags to our local schools.  Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter to be informed of volunteer dates!   Have a business or group that would like to volunteer? Reach out to us at to inquire about setting up a special volunteer opportunity for your group!

Make a financial contribution

Make a financial donation to the NE Tacoma Healthy Kids Coalition.  Volunteers can then use funds to purchase food supplies and other basic needs support to serve our families. Your donation may be tax-deductible!  

This is the quickest way for you to support our efforts. 

If you would like to make a donation via check, please reach out to us at to make arrangements. Donations by check are received through any of the four local PTAs- Browns Point, Crescent Heights, Meeker or NE Tacoma, all of which are  501(c)(3) organizations.
