Kendall Runyan, age 6, and her mom recently collected food for homeless kids at The Great Kitsap Pasta Feed in Silverdale on Nov. 8.

The event, sponsored by Newlife Church, Conestoga Wealth Management of Gig Harbor, and Citizen Digital Photography of Bremerton, was free to all with a donation of food for homeless youth.

Many Kitsap residents turned out for the event. The donated food was given to StandUp For Kids-Kitsap for distribution. StandUp For Kids-Kitsap reaches out to homeless kids in Kitsap County providing food, clothing, toiletries and other necessities.

StandUp For Kids-Kitsap is one of 26 national chapters in the US.

Kendall has been interested in helping homeless kids since age 4. She and her mom have volunteered at meals for the homeless around Kitsap.

Kendall is in kindergarten and attends Discovery Depot Montessori School in Tracyton.
