The 2016-2017 school year is quickly upon us and Food For Thought is expanding its services to reach 1,500 students in 18 different schools across Walton and Okaloosa Counties.  With the addition of 3 schools and 300 students, Food For Thought's volunteer needs have also grown.  
Please join us at one of our 30 minute volunteer outreach meetings listed below to find out more information on Food For Thought and how you can help this school year.  The 30 minute session will include a question and answer period along with new volunteer paperwork.  Once you are registered, Food For Thought will schedule you to train with one of our seasoned volunteers in your area of interest.   We love working with families, corporate groups and church groups!
