HOW YOU MADE AN IMPACT

As a community of volunteers and donors, families and children, YOU are working together on our promise to nourish kids’ bodies and minds, grow sustainable food, learn from hands-on experiences and engage as a diverse community to solve childhood hunger.

Here is how you made an Impact in 2017 – 2018:

Together, we nourished kids’ bodies and minds with nutritious, ready-to-eat food each weekday. Sack Suppers are a powerful tool that reduce behavioral issues, lessen sickness and reduce truancy, leading to greater academic achievement and opportunities for local kids.

Good food has the power to shape lives.

Our programs seek to create broader access to good food, plus better understanding of why it matters and where it comes from so that children in every part of our community can be their best in school and life.
