DONATE TO Help us raise 1/2 million meals this summer.

This summer, thousands of kids won’t have the comfort of knowing where their next meal will come from. The safety net of school programs providing breakfast, lunch and snacks will be gone. Our goal is to raise ½ million meals by August 31, giving peace of mind to struggling families and filling the hearts and bellies of kids in our community. Donate today!

Everyone can get involved:
