Our signature program is the Helping Kids Backpack Weekend Meal Program which fights child hunger.Through partnership with Montgomery County Public Schools we discreetly provide food sacks filled with nutritious food to more than 2,000 needy elementary and middle school each Friday, to ensure they don't go hungry over the weekends.
Many of these children receive free meals during the school week, and are at risk of hunger and malnutrition. The healthy food items are kid-friendly, non-perishable, vitamin-fortified and easily consumed. They are from the dairy, protein, grain and fruit groups. The food sacks consist of breakfasts, lunches, dinners, beverages and snacks. Children eligible to receive the weekend meals are identified by a teacher or counselor, and parents are asked permission for their child to participate.
Once permission is given, the children are discreetly given the food each Friday prior to leaving school, to take home with them for the weekend. This program is critical because children are unable to learn, focus and concentrate on an empty stomach. Hence, they return to school Monday, ready to learn and function.
