The holidays are a magical time for most. Unfortunately, many local families face a huge economic burden during the holidays, and prolonged stress related to food insecurity can get in the way of truly enjoying the holiday season with their loved ones.
On average, students will miss 10 meals over Thanksgiving Break and 20 meals over Christmas break.
Donate $40 today to feed one local family in need this holiday season.
- For Thanksgiving and Christmas, Food For Thought will feed 700 families for each holiday meal curbside service
- Each holiday meal service will provide food for the holiday meal + food for the holiday break + fresh produce

This summer, Food For Thought is providing curbside food pick ups for 500-600 families twice a month, at 5 locations in Okaloosa and Walton County.
At each food service, the families will receive 30-50 food items in order for families to have enough food to make meals at home.
You as a family or business can sponsor a month of food services at one of our five locations for $1,500. You can donate online or Text to Give!

Food For Thought is preparing for another summer of food services in Walton and Okaloosa Counties.
This year will look different, because it has to. However, our commitment to fighting food insecurity remains the same. Food For Thought will now provide five pick-up locations to better serve the families in our program. Each weekly service will distribute no less than 30 food items to each family during this challenging time.
Our team has been working hard to gather information and adjust our programs in order to provide safe and impactful services. Food For Thought is taking this time day-by-day just like the rest of you, but what I do know is, FFT will show up for our community and children just as we have since 2010. Your support means so much to us; we recognize every one of us is being impacted by COVID-19.
While this is not exactly the 10 year anniversary we had planned, it is a perfect demonstration of what Food For Thought brings to our community. Thank you all for your continued support.

Thank you Whole Foods Market for making it easy for customers to donate food to Food For Thought! They pre-pack bags of food at various price points, that you, the customer, can purchase at the store. These bags of food are then delivered directly to Food For Thought to use in our weekly distribution to families while schools are closed. Next time you pick up food at Whole Foods, consider adding a bag of food that will help feed those in your community!
