Washington WE Club’s food drive hits close to home

By Zoe Demarco

Drive west about three miles from Meridian Middle School in Kent, Washington, and you’ll find yourself at the Kent Food Bank. The two-storey grey building is where the Meridian WE Club brought the donations they accumulated during their WE Scare Hunger campaign in the fall of 2018. It’s also where 20 families from the school received their Thanksgiving dinners.

Over 50 per cent of Meridian’s 600 students get free and reduced-cost lunch each day, and many students visit the Kent Food Bank with their families. Choosing to take action against hunger in their local community was an easy decision for the WE Club, said Elizabeth Jones, the educator who runs the club.

Watch how the seventh and eighth graders of Meridian Middle School’s WE Club took action to help their community, and their peers.
