What is Bite2Go?
Bite2Go is a partnership between Second Harvest and At The Core. We are dedicated to finding practical solutions to childhood food insecurity. Our program works closely with a growing number of community partners to fill the weekend meal gap that some school-age children face by providing Bite2Go food supplies through the school year. Each week, staff members at participating schools put packages of kid-friendly food discreetly in the backpacks of students in need before those kids go home for the weekend.
Which schools have Bite2Go?
Bite2Go provides weekend food relief to over 7,000 students in nearly 150 elementary, middle and high schools in our service territory. We have active Bite2Go programs in Spokane and surrounding communities, the Tri-Cities and numerous other communities throughout Eastern Washington and North Idaho.
What is in a Bite2Go kit?
Bite2Go kits for elementary kids contain two days’ worth of food for breakfast, lunch and snacks. These prepackaged weekend food kits are kid friendly, healthy, require no preparation and are shelf stable.
For middle and high school kids, the Bite2Go XL kit grows to contain more protein and canned fruits and vegetables. These older students will have opportunities to learn basic food preparation and they also enjoy greater elements of choice and independence as they select their food from a menu.
How does food get to the schools?
We empower businesses, churches and civic groups to adopt a school and cover the food costs of the Bite2Go program there. These adoptive organizations also provide a volunteer driver to pick up food for their schools at Second Harvest on pre-arranged distribution days. These drivers then deliver the Bite2Go food to their adopted school.
Once the food reaches the school, a network of teachers and counselors hand out the Bite2Go food bags to students in need. We emphasize that this handoff happens privately and discreetly to preserve the anonymity and dignity of the kids who receive Bite2Go food.
