• Corporate Spotlight: Bay Baits

    Thank you, Bay Baits for sponsoring our Christmas 2018 program! With Bay Baits generous support, Food for Thought Outreach was able to provide service to 600 families in need in our area.  Did you know, that over the Christmas school break food insecure kids miss an average of 20 meals? We are thankful for Bay Baits enabling us to help bridge this hunger gap over the holidays!

    In addition to bridging the food gap over the holidays, there is also a need to bridge this food gap and keep kids nourished over the summer break. During summer break, the average student in our program can miss 110 meals.  The Food For Thought summer service program will provide food for 600 families, providing them each with a month worth of food, three times (food for three months in total).  By becoming a Summer program sponsor, you will empower children to be well-fed to enjoy their summer break!
