Kids who go without adequate weekend food are less likely to arrive at school on Mondays ready to learn. They are sick more often and have trouble paying attention in class. The Children’s Hunger Project helps level the playing field for kids in Brevard by providing weekend meals.
Each week on Friday, The Children’s Hunger Project helps as many elementary school children as possible to carry food home for the weekend in their backpack.
Food items include ravioli or spaghetti and meatballs, milk, juice boxes, breakfast bar, cereal and other food items.
This kid-friendly food is lightweight and easy for kids to handle – no cooking is required. Even if the power is out the kids can still pull the top of the can and eat Beanie Weenies.
On Monday, the kids return to school but with a better and healthier foundation for learning.
Our goal is to ensure that elementary school children, at least on weekends, will have basic nutrition.
