COVID-19

In response to schools closing as a result of COVID-19, WA-BLOC began its Feed the Beach effort on Friday, March 13th to bring food justice to students and families in the Rainier Beach neighborhood.  Through individual contributions, we were able to raise $30k to sustain this effort through mid-June. WA-BLOC was able to reinvest all $30k into the black and brown restaurants, caterers and chefs in South East Seattle that prepared the meals for the bi-weekly Feed the Beach event which was hosted at the Rainier Beach Community Center Plaza.  Since March 13th, over 4,000 hot meals were distributed to students and families in the Rainier Beach community as a result of our rapid-response programming.
