Every weekend over 7000 school-age children go hungry in Pinellas & Pasco County, Florida.
Sixty percent of Pinellas & Pasco kids are on the free lunch program. However, who is feeding them on the weekends?
We help provide food for students whose parents can not feed them over the weekends. Many of these children only get two meals a day, the free or reduced breakfast and lunch they get at school. These are American children.
For $200 a YEAR one student eats EVERY WEEKEND for the SCHOOL YEAR.
We provide a back pack to carry the food in so they are not embarrassed.
The food packs were designed by a nutritionist to make sure they are healthy.
The pack looks similar to the picture below.
Your donation is tax deductible.
100% of every dollar is used to for the kids.
