Food Bank Pick-up (Wednesdays)
Our dedicated food coordinator Suzie (Nova parent) is bringing food to the school twice a week from local food banks. She brings in fresh foods on Fridays from Issaquah, but we need someone (you?) to help on Wednesdays with pick up from a food bank close to Nova. Please contact Suzie at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or think you might be able to help out.
