What is the weekEND HUNGER Backpack Program?
The goal of the weekEND HUNGER is to provide children at risk of hunger with easy access to nutritious, non-perishable food items that meet their weekend nutritional needs. Each weekend a backpack containing two breakfast, lunches, dinners, and snacks are sent home with children in need.
ITEMS IN THE BACKPACKS ARE:
- Single serving
- Easy to prepare
- Individually wrapped
Why become a weekEND HUNGER Sponsor?
In almost every community there are hungry children who wake up with little or no food. Families rely on free and reduced meals at school to keep their children nourished during the week, but on weekends children have little to nothing to eat. By becoming a sponsor, you can help children reach their full potential to become the future of their communities.
“Nutrition and Education go hand in hand. Our future depends on the quality of education, but a hungry child can’t learn and an uneducated adult can’t earn.”
