Through our partnership with the Children’s Hunger Project we now provide over 300 food packets to local school kids and 70 Bags of food (per week) to students families so kids don’t go hungry while away from school. It’s a great program!
Hunger is one of the most severe roadblocks to the learning process. Lack of nutrition may set up a cycle of poor performance. Hunger also may make children more prone to illness and other health issues. The Bag Pack Program is designed to fill that nutrition gap and make sure children can get the nutritious meals they need.
Help us feed those children in need. The average cost per child is $8.00 per week. The supplemental food will be provided to school children at local elementary schools whose homes are considered to be food insecure. The children who receive the supplemental food are enrolled in the Free Reduce Lunch Program and will be given an allotment of food each Friday to ensure they have food to eat while at home for the weekend.
Currently we are providing 70 Bag Packs per week. Our Goal for the 2013-14 school year is to Provide 80 Bag Packs per week but we can’t do it without your help.
