About Us

Food For Thought is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization in Florida, serving Walton and Okaloosa Counties. Food For Thought works to fight child hunger through five, year-round programs, designed to fight the negative impacts of Child Hunger in the lives of Food Insecure children in grades K-12. Our goal is to support a child’s development and educational experience by bridging the gap between school meals during weekends, Summer and Holiday breaks, as well as offering learning and life-skill resources through the Emeril Lagasse Full-Circle Kitchen and our Full-Circle Gardens. Food For Thought has been working to fight child hunger since 2010, serving students from 34 schools in Walton and Okaloosa Counties, through an-in school backpack program. But, since the onset of the Covid-19 Crisis, we at Food For Thought have had to change the way we operate our backpack program. Currently, we offer curbside food pick-ups twice a month at 5 locations in Walton & Okaloosa Counties, to serve 500-600 families each month with a bag of 30+ food items.
