• Join the Brown Bag Lunch Club!

    Many of us spend between $10-15 on eating lunch out, each and every day. What would happen if just one day per month we decided instead to bring our lunch from home and donate that $10 towards feeding hungry children in our community? Friends, this is your invitation to the Brown Bag Lunch Club, a Food for Thought initiative that invites us to be more thoughtful in our lunchtime choices and to make the selfless decision to make a monthly donation of $10 to support the Food for Thought program.

  • Volunteer Spotlight- Dave Brown

    Dave Brown
    How long have you been volunteering with FFT?
    I have been volunteering for FFT for a little over 6 months.
     
    What drew you to FFT? 
    I heard about FFT from a friend. However what really drew me to FFT was Tiffany’s story about the humble beginnings, the real needs, & the well orchestrated response that FFT has assembled that I heard in orientation.
    Favorite part about being involved with FFT?
    Really the best part of volunteering for FFT is being part of this great team & knowing you are may a difference.

    Do you have a special memory or something that has impacted you during services that you would like to share?
    Again there are lots of special moments in simply getting the job done. However, seeing children at school getting visibly excited when they see the backpack of food is heart warming.
    Thank you for dedicating your time to Food For Thought, Dave!

  • National Nutrition Month!

    Did you know that March is National Nutrition Month? 1 in 7 children in Walton and Okaloosa Counties live in food insecure households and don't always get the nutrition that they need. That’s why we provide backpacks filled with healthy, easy to prepare foods for students who are dependent on free or reduced school meals. This wouldn't be possible without our volunteers and sponsors! Thank you for supporting our mission and making a difference in our community!
