We support the health of local families
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.
North High Food Bank
We are partners with North High School in maintaining a food bank on the school premises. This provides an opportunity for Careers students to learn about managing a business, by sorting and organizing incoming food and packing boxes to send to families. Local businesses, individuals and other non-profits donate to make this a vibrant and well-stocked resource.
Please contact us to learn more.
Caring Coalition is run exclusively by volunteers, which allows us to use 100% of donations for services to the community. We are people of all ages and circumstances
who come together to help our neighbors. We always welcome more helpers for running food drives or packing weekend care packages. If you would like to get involved in a hands-on way, please let us know.
