This week, Team Apple Corps decided to visit team member, Darcy Buendia at her service site The Hunger Intervention Program (HIP) in Lake City! HIP is a new partner site with the Apple Corps program that provides meal services and food bank demonstrations to the Lake City/North Seattle community. Though most of the Apple Corps programs serve the south Seattle communities, we are excited to reach out to the north Seattle area through programs like HIP!

On the day of our visit, Darcy was hosting her weekly packing party, which invites volunteers to help prepare and package donated food to share with students and family who participate in HIP’s backpack meal program. We had a great time getting to know the volunteers who support HIP twice a week on a regular basis, some of which have been a part of HIP for over six years! We loved the positive, welcoming environment at HIP and applaud all the hard work that volunteers and Darcy dedicate to make this program so fantastic!
