About Us

WHY WE DO IT

Weekend food programs for students are designed to supplement the students educational process. The link between hunger and education is undeniable. Children who go hungry are more likely to exhibit higher levels of anxiety, irritability, hyperactivity, and aggression which affect all-around school performance.

HOW WE DO IT

Food is purchased from various low cost sources; it is packed by volunteers and delivered to the schools; the bags are distributed to the students discreetly, so that the recipients can remain anonymous.
