Hunger Intervention Program Summer of Fun!
School’s out and summer is in! Throughout the school year, children who rely on free or reduced price lunch at their schools are suddenly faced with hunger during the summer. Summer Eats is part of a federal program that tries to address that gap. This year, HIP is running thirteen summer meals sites throughout northeast Seattle and southeast Shoreline. Four of our sites are closed sites, meaning they’re not open to everyone. All other sites (http://hungerintervention.org/summer-2019/) are open sites, and everyone is welcome to any of those!
At HIP, we realize that when a child is hungry, their parents are not getting proper nutrition either. Therefore, at all our sites, we also serve meals for parents.

GEMS Middle School STEM program
Check out GEMS (Girls in Engineering, Math and Science), a middle school STEM program sponsored by the Seattle chapter of the Association for Women in Science (AWIS). The program is a free, volunteer-run, evening science enrichment program that explores STEM fields as diverse as forensics, oceanography, civil engineering, and neuroscience through hands-on activities with guidance from women scientists currently employed in these fields. In addition, we organize several field trips a year, such as a programming workshop at Google and a beach walk exploration of tide pools with the Seattle Aquarium. We offer one-on-one mentorship opportunities for girls to get hands-on experience in fields that interest them.
Our goal is to help middle school students who identify as girls learn about the range of opportunities that exist within science and technology, to encourage more girls to enter these fields, and allow them to build a sense of confidence that they can be successful in these fields as professional women. GEMS meetings run once a month from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm from November to May and are offered at two locations: the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in downtown Seattle and South Shore PK-8 School in South Seattle.
If you are interested or know a student who is interested for the 2019-2020 year, please fill out this form and we will contact you when our application opens in September 2019.
