Weekend Backpack Meals
Our first program was dedicated to helping the kids in our hometown
In the United States, 12 million children are “food insecure” – this means they don’t have regular, consistent access to healthy, nutritious food necessary for an active life. Public schools help these kids by giving them free or reduced lunches and sometimes even breakfasts and dinners at school – however, these kids often go hungry on the weekends and when school isn’t in session. We committed to filling that gap for an elementary school just ten-minutes down the road from our head office. Our communities are important to us and we want to help ensure that every student has the support they need to succeed.
