KING 5 Home Team Summer

“Our community is impacted by childhood hunger during the months away from school, and we hope our storytelling can help connect these families to the necessary resources.”

– KING 5 president and general manager Christy Moreno

Northwest Harvest, in partnership with KING 5 news, is launching a campaign called Home Team Summer that aims to shed light on the realities of childhood hunger during the summer months.

We’re collaborating with our partners Safeway and the Seattle Seahawks to amplify the experiences of families that rely on schools for meals and who struggle to make ends meet during the summer months. Through storytelling, the Home Team Summer campaign will highlight the prevalence of this issue and inform individuals of available assistance for Washington residents like SUN Bucks (Summer EBT) and free summer meal sites.

In addition to the campaign’s awareness efforts, KING 5 will host a food drive at Seahawks Football Fest on Saturday, August 3rd. Support those affected by childhood hunger, join Northwest Harvest, KING 5, Safeway, and the Seattle Seahawks at Lumen Field to donate non-perishable food items. All donations made to Home Team Summer will go towards helping families in our community.
