Each week on Friday, The Children's Hunger Project will help as many elementary school children as possible to carry food home in their backpack.
Food items include, for example, ravioli, spaghetti and meatballs, milk, juice boxes, breakfast bar, cereal and other similar food items.
This type of food is kid - friendly…meaning it is lightweight, healthy and easy for the kids to handle since no cooking is required. Even if the power is out the kids can still pull the top of the can and eat Beanie Weenies.
On Monday, the kids return to school but with a better and healthier foundation for learning. Then the cycle begins again the next Friday.
At least on weekends, kids will have basic nutrition.
Please look at this list and if you can donate anything, get with us at CFPA and we will pick it up and bring it to them.
