FOOD FOR KIDS
Supplies a bag full of healthy snacks and easy to prepare meal items for children in need to take home and eat after school and on weekends.
The program is offered through every school in our region.
Children are identified by their school nurse or counselors for the program.
Around 5,000 children are being served in the current school year.
You can Sponsor a Child for $93 so that every child in need of the Food for Kids program may be served.
