Make It Happen

1.2 million students spend their days in K-12 schools across Washington State. You can ensure they gain the skills and hands-on learning opportunities needed to be successful leaders.

More than 1 million students attend public schools in Washington state everyday, and they deserve access to healthy meal options. At the same time, we have an opportunity to pair nutritional needs with environmental responsibility. It’s a new frontier – and we’re excited!
