Pizza Klatch serves pizza and support to hundreds of LGBTQ+ students and allies each week at 11 high schools in Thurston County!

We are dedicated to supporting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning, Intersex, Two-Spirit, Pansexual, Asexual, Gender-fluid, and Genderqueer Youth (LGBTQ+) and their allies. Since 2007, we have been building community and promoting self-love for LGBTQ+ youth while preventing suicide, reducing self-harm, and keeping teens on track to graduate high school.

Support groups are during high school lunch period with free pizza, two trained facilitators, and a convenient and safe forum for support, discussion and education.
