Meals to Go: Creating a Positive Change for Area Students
Your Positive Change Donation supports the Matthew’s Crossing Food Bank’s Meals To Grow program that supplies area children, teens and community college students with backpacks that contain canned meat, fruit, vegetables, pasta and other foods. Meals to Go meals are given to students located in Chandler, Gilbert, Higley, Mesa and Tempe schools every week.
Each backpack has enough food to feed the students two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners and many snacks so they can get through their weekend without being hungry.
Additionally, food closets at Chandler-Gilbert Community College, as well as in junior high and high school campuses around the East Valley, offer food to students for weekday evening needs.
The Summer Snack Pack program offers students snacks with protein including vegetables and fruit to get through the summer as part of the Meals To Grow program.
