We support the health of local families
Family Food Box Deliveries
This is an unprecedented time of food insecurity in our community and the nation. Up until now, many students from low income families have relied on school meal programs during the week and our care packages over the weekend. The schools we serve are closed right now and many of our families are presently without a regular paycheck. In response, we have expanded our service to provide entire families with nourishing food.
Over the next several months we plan to serve more families. We deliver a set of 2 food boxes to each family on our service. Food boxes for a family of four cost approximately $60 each and include a variety of nutritious foods. You are a vital part of this effort. Your donation will ensure more families receive the food they need.
Weekend Food Program
For children who rely on school lunches for the majority of their sustenance, the weekends can be a difficult time. Our weekend food program provides a bag of healthful, easy to open/prepare snacks to children who are going without adequate food on weekends.
Typical weekend care packages include items such as protein bars, apple sauce, fruit strips, bananas or apples, milk, juice, and other kid-friendly and appealing snacks to get them through the weekend.
