Weekends Without Hunger

FULL BACKPACKS EQUAL

HAPPY TUMMIES!

Participants aged 4 – 13 years are referred by schools aware of students with limited access to food in their homes.

​The school submits a referral and parental permission form. Food items are packed by Food4Kids volunteers and delivered to schools each Friday morning.

 

At the school, the food package is placed into the student’s own backpack helping to shield the child from any stigma associated with hunger or receiving food assistance. Each child in the home receives their own food package.

The cost to feed a child for an entire school year is $400.

Programs are 100% funded by community donors and one-time grants. We are not in receipt of any core funding.

I never thought our family would depend on others for food

"I never thought our family would depend on others for food. With a medical problem, I had no choice but to quit work. As a single parent raising 2 great kids, there is barely enough money for rent, little money for food and absolutely no money for extras. When the school asked if I would like to involve my kids in the Food4Kids program, all I could do was cry. Knowing my children have food brings comfort. The fresh fruits, soups and healthy snacks are appreciated. Thank you for this service. The volunteers at Food4Kids are angels."
