Picnic Packs

Want to help families at the House this summer? We receive few food donations in the summer, but it’s actually when we need help the most! We’d love your help to keep our pantry full this summer with the donation of a “Picnic Pack.” We serve more people than usual during the summer, as patient siblings stay with us when school is out. That means we run low on snack items like:

  • Pudding/Jello cups
  • Granola bars
  • Individually packaged cookies/crackers
  • Mac and cheese cups
  • Applesauce cups
  • Fruit cups
  • Shelf stable chocolate or regular milk
  • Fruit snacks, fruit leathers
  • Nut or trail mix snack packs

To make a Picnic Pack:

  • Please include two types of snacks that come in bags (granola bars, cookies, crackers, pretzels, nuts, fruit snacks, etc)
  • One type of snack that comes in a cup (apple sauce, fruit, mac and cheese, jello, pudding, etc)

We’ll put these supplies in our pantry so families can have them throughout the summer! If you’d like to make your picnic pack even bigger, please consider adding a new baseball hat, travel size sunscreen and/or a beach towel. These items will help families who have kids attending the Hutch School Summer Camp, which takes kids on field trips and plans fun activities for every weekday.

How do I deliver my Picnic Packs? 

You can drop off supplies at the House (5130 40th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98105) any day from 9AM to 9PM or have items shipped directly to us by purchasing items from our Amazon Wishlist. Planning a large delivery? Schedule a drop off time with our Operations Manager, .

Can I get a tour of the House when we drop off items?

Unfortunately due to the low immunity that many of our kids have, we cannot give tours of the House to anyone under the age of 13 or to anyone who is feeling sick/has a cold. We would be happy to take your photo on our Ronald McDonald bench and have a staff member tell you a little bit about where the items will be going – just ask at the front desk when you drop off your donation!

Have a question we haven’t answered here?
