For decades years, the St. Leo Food Connection, part of St. Leo Parish, has been fighting hunger in Pierce County. St. Leo Food Bank is one of the largest on-site food banks in the country. Their Children’s Programs are working to fill the gaps in school meals to eliminate child hunger. The Backpack Program, in coordination with Tacoma School District and Clover Park School District, serves over 30 schools and over 800 students weekly. Springbrook Mobile Food Bank works to provide a week’s worth of food to a neighborhood with limited food access.
Students can drop off donations in their homeroom classes. Monetary gifts are also accepted!
