According to a press release from the Seahawks, the Seahawks Mascot, Blitz, and Sea Gal Kylie were also there to present the grant.
“The grant was given on behalf of the Washington Dairy Council in efforts to provide the school with the resources to create a portable breakfast cart. Its purpose is to provide an easy solution for students to receive grab-and-go meals after the beginning of the school day,” it said in the press release.
The Washington Dairy Council is a team of nutrition professionals funded by the Dairy farmers of Washington that promote lifelong health and enjoyment of food.
The school plans to use the grant to purchase new equipment for its physical education program as well, the release continued.
