On a normal day 200,293 kids across our city get nutritious breakfasts and snacks through their school-based Student Nutrition Programs; but these are not normal times. Schools are closed and children are still hungry. To help fill this gap, we have been working with our partners to find a way to get food out to kids who need it, in the safest and fastest way possible. Working closely with the school boards and volunteers from KPMG, we have developed a process, now in place, to get food cards out to the families of children in need. Each child will receive a $50 food card, which is the cost of breakfast for 30 days.
Many wonderful partners have come together to help cover the cost of the food cards, but the need is great. If you would like to help us nourish children during this time of crisis, please donate here. On behalf of the children we serve, we thank you.
