Emergency Food Box Program
The heart, soul, and foundation of our food bank is the drive to feed our neighbors in need. The most tangible way a need for hunger relief gets met, is through our Emergency Food Box Program. Everyday, people just like you and me walk through our doors, and with a simple state ID, they receive a food box that means so much more to them than lunch or dinner. These boxes represent a reason to hold on to hope…hope for a healthier and happier future.
Meals to Grow Student Hunger Relief
Tonight, 1 in 4 children will go to bed hungry. This heartbreaking and unacceptable statistic is the reason we began implementing our Meals To Grow weekend backpack program. Many students rely on school meals as their primary source of nutrition during the week. Weekends are a different story and these students will likely start the next week distracted by hunger. Our Meals To Grow program serves to fill the gap by providing over 6000 weekend backpack meals to schools every week. And that number continues to grow. Our commitment to fighting childhood hunger insecurity is unwavering. We know that children who have reliable access to food, not only do better in school, they do better in life.
