March 18 Update Regarding COVID-19
We are still finalizing the food distribution plans with the districts. However, the biggest update is that due to social distancing, we will be limiting our volunteers.
We will NOT be doing an online sign-up until further notice.
Instead, we will soon be reaching out to our regular volunteers directly to coordinate.
We appreciate the desire to help, but we hope you understand the need to limit potential exposure.
Thank you so much for your support!
To fight food insecurity among the 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 36 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?
No gift is too small! Even if you can’t “adopt-a-school”, we welcome and appreciate all individual contributions. Please donate here to help. You can also sign up on our page to give monthly through automatic withdrawal.
