Kirkland non-profit helps restaurants feed people in need

The Kirkland Parks and Community Foundation said the campaign is a way to help a community struggling at both ends.

KIRKLAND, Wash. — A Kirkland non-profit is kicking off a crowdfunding campaign to help local restaurants feed people in need. 

The Kirkland Parks and Community Foundation said the campaign is a way to help a community struggling at both ends. 

"Everybody's trying to figure out what they can do and this one, you know, it's a win, win, win," said Dana Nunnelly of the Kirkland Parks and Community Foundation. 

The Foundation is hoping a steady flow of cash will help struggling restaurants stay afloat while ensuring the community's most vulnerable get fed.

"It's a win for the restaurant businesses and it's a win for the people that need the help and it's a win for the community who wants to support this whole thing that we're in the middle of," said Nunnelly. 

Right now, two restaurants, Deru Market and Homegrown, have signed up but the group hopes more restaurants will participate. 

The foundation hopes to raise $4,000. The funding will go directly to local restaurants, in turn, helping the city's homeless, low-income families and seniors in need.
