More than 20 years helping women and children
Below is a note to WOMEN of SWPA about this program.
Food for Kids is a weekend food backpack program that began in December of 2017. That school year we provided nutritious food to 114 qualifying students in McAnnulty Elementary School during the school year. The students were from refugee families, as well low income and single parent households. Since its inception the program has increased the number of students served to 154 each week as the need has increased. That was BEFORE the current economic crisis caused by the pandemic! When the pandemic closed the schools, we had to find an alternate means to get the food to the students. With the school district’s help, we continued to provide the food and they distributed it for us with their grab-n-go lunches at the most impoverished sites. The coming school year will continue to present challenges. The district has challenged us to provide the program to ALL five of its schools. We have taken up that challenge and plan to provide weekend meals to almost 1000 students during the coming school year with the help of our volunteers and donors!
