To fight food insecurity among youth of Champaign County
Eliminate hunger to enable kids to grow and develop
We Care About Kids!
Our mission is simple: We provide nourishing food to food insecure school children on weekends and school holidays throughout the school year. How we execute that mission takes many hands and a great deal of generosity. Our organization primarily runs on volunteers who pack food in bags for and deliver food to our 33 schools. Our donors, corporate sponsors and community partners have made this work possible with their donations and grants. The social workers in the schools work hard to identify which kids need our services, and provide respect and anonymity to them.
Want to help?
There are 4 schools wanting to be added for the 2019/2020 school year. We need to bring in additional funding in order to be able to support these schools. The average cost to fund a school for one year is $4,000. Please donate here to help. No gift is too small. You can also sign up on our page to give monthly through automatic withdrawal.
