SPOKANE, Wash. — No-Li Brewhouse is doing what it does best in times of need: giving back to the Spokane community during the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
The pub is joining Washington Rep. Marcus Riccelli on Tuesday to support Logan Elementary School.
No-Li staff distributed 200 handmade lunches for the school’s students and their families beginning at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday.
Spokane Public Schools is closing as of Tuesday through at least Friday, April 24. About 57 percent of the district’s students receive free and reduced lunch.
SPS announced on Monday that it will begin offering grab-and-go meals for all students at 16 sites throughout the community beginning Thursday, March 19. Meals can be picked up from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“Next week, Spokane Public Schools will be available to provide daily lunches for Logan Elementary. If not, No-Li will be here to support,” No-Li owners John and Cindy Bryant wrote.
Other restaurants in the Spokane area are offering deals for children who may be in need of a healthy lunch.
Cochinito Taqueria is offering one free kids’ menu item for every child accompanied by an adult who purchases a full meal.
Remedy on the South Hill is also offering a “kids eat free” deal with the purchase of any entrée.
