April 2017- During the month of April Cafe Luna will be fundraising to raise money and awareness about Vashon’s very own BACKPACK PANTRY. Backpack Pantry is a not for profit organization that provides weekend meals during the school year to children who need them.
22% of children attending scholl on Vashon Island come from familes who are financially challenged. That’s more than 300 children enrolled in our public schools!
Backpack Pantry was formed by volunteers in the community to ensure that while not in school on the weekends, children will have nutritious meals to eat during the school year. This is an ongoing program with the goal of reaching every child in need on Vashon-Maury Islands.
At the beginning on each school year Backpack Pantry makes a comittment to serve as many children as financially possible. We would like to help raise awareness of this wonderful program that shows kids that the community cares about their well-being.
Cafe Luna will be taking donations throughout the month!
“Cafe Luna presents a group show of haikus composed by the Vashon Island Haiku Group. These haikus address issues of mortality, in conjunction with the festival, “A Vashon Conversation for the Living About Dying” (March 2-5, 2017). The haikus are displayed in a large format, in calligraphy done by Island artist Kajira W. Berry.”
