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, and Meeker Middle 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.  We are so grateful for the many ways our local community has stepped up to serve local students during the COVID-19 pandemic and we continue to work with our local schools to identify needs and to adapt our program to safely meet those needs!
