As an annual event in recent years, the Sno-Valley Youth Council has prepared and served meals at local tent cities. This year, the council served a meal in Issaquah Tent City serving a population of approximately 40 homeless individuals in King County.
The council served a full meal featuring tacos with all the fixings — ground meats, salsa, cheese, lettuce, etc. One student, Julia Navidi actually baked over 200 chocolate chip cookies!
Students had the opportunity to talk with the people living in the shelter. Sometimes casual chit chat, other times people shared stories of what brought them to the shelter.
Toward the close of the evening, several patrons approached students to give heartfelt “Thank you’s” for their donated meals and generosity.
