The key to our success in reaching hungry kids and families are our amazing school partners. We work with teachers, counselors, principals, social workers, and the entire school staff to raise awareness of childhood hunger. Believe us, though, they know. We count on our school partners to identify children in need, then distribute our backpack meals along with links to food pantries and other resources in the community.
We do everything else, including raising funds within the community, purchasing the foods, packing the meals, delivering the meals to the schools, and working with educators to fill the gaps in whatever resources the child and family may need. This proactive approach to putting food in the hands of children is what sets us apart, and we couldn't do it without our school superheroes.
Interested in bringing our program to your school? We are currently serving schools in the Northern Virginia area, and may consider expanding our coverage area if the need and resources can be identified. Email our Executive Director to learn more!
