Ever wonder where those $10 Hunger bags go?

They stay right here - on Bainbridge Island as Helpline House works in partnership with
Home Team Harvest
KING 5's annual Home Team Harvest benefits Northwest Harvest. 1 in 6 Washington children struggle with hunger. But with your help, we can make an impact. Northwest Harvest works with more than 375 local food banks and meal programs across the state to distribute food to people in need. Together, we can help our neighbors. Together, we can reach our goal: 7 million meals for Northwest families.
Starting here; at home, you can buy a $10 Hunger Bag at the Bainbridge Island Safeway and support Helpline House's Food Bank. Every dollar spent stays on Bainbridge Island.
