We provide an essential service for local children experiencing chronic hunger. We deliver nutritious food packages directly to at-risk, vulnerable children when they are not in school and need our help the most.

It is estimated that at least 3,000 children in our community do not have access to the nourishment they need to thrive mentally, physically, or socially. School nutrition programs help, but these programs only exist during the weeks that children are attending school.

"The benefits of this program to our families are too many to mention, but the long term result will be a reduction in risk and vulnerability."
