Hunger Matters All Along the Ballot
Oct. 21, 2020
Families who struggle to put food on the table are quite often working more than one job at minimum wage, and still come up short when it comes to food.
Decisions that impact hunger occur in state, federal and local offices. That’s why it’s important to vote and get others to vote, too.
Return your ballot to a designated ballot drop box by 8:00p.m. on Nov. 3. Visit your local county elections office's website to find the ballot boxes in Kitsap county or use Google Maps to find a ballot box near you. http://buff.ly/2eN46sL
The need is great, the hunger is real!

Brigade Proud to Begin Serving
West Hills Restorative Schools
Oct. 15, 2020
The Brigade is happy to announce our continued expansion for the 2020-21 program year as we welcome students and their families from West Hills Restorative School.
The Bremerton School District describes the new school as a combination of Kitsap Mental Health, special education, cognitive behavioral therapy, education and community services. This alternative program will serve students, grades 2-8, who have significant behavior challenges.
This expansion is possible only because of the amazing support of the community as we all pull together to fight food insecurity and help families in need.
Today marks a new milestone for the Brigade as we send out 165 "Take-Home" bags to families.
We started with only 140 bags in mid-September, but as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc on the lives of so many, the Brigade's volunteers are working to find creative ways to response.
Thank you, Bremerton!
