Our community has more children than ever before who are food insecure, meaning they don't have enough food at home. When school lets out for the weekends, some kids are counting the hours until school starts on Monday morning, since they know that breakfast and lunch will be provided free or reduced. Think about that for a moment. From Friday at lunch all the way to Monday at breakfast, some kids in YOUR community have nothing to eat. And how do you think a hungry child is going to perform in school? What chance does he really have for success, how can he really concentrate on his work if all he can think about is how hungry he is. That little hungry voice inside of him turns into a rumble, and schoolwork takes a backseat.
It is CRITICAL for children to have enough to eat, and at Food For Thought Outreach our mission is to eradicate food insecurity so that every. single. child. has the same chance at success in school, in the community, in life.
You can be a part of this. In fact, we NEED YOU to be a part of this. It's more affordable than you think to help our cause, and 2019 is going to be our most ambitious year yet. Just look at the numbers and listen to that little voice inside your heart that says "You can help." No money or food to donate? We are always needing volunteers. There are ways to help our cause, and we truly hope you will consider finding one this year. We need you, and the children need you.
