We believe in helping kids have a better relationship with food and more focus on their education, not their hunger.
When children are hungry, they cannot focus in class, putting them behind their classmates. This brings stress and anxiety into the classroom for the student, their peers, and the teacher, impacting the entire learning environment. Some children rely on school for all their meals and may not have access to nutritious food at home over the weekends.
Thanks to our generous donors, kids have food over the weekend and come to school Monday ready to learn. WeekEnd Hunger Backpacks are a way for children in food insecure homes to discreetly receive meals for their family before leaving school for the weekend. After we fill plastic bags with the items needed, thanks to the help of our volunteers, we deliver these bags to local schools each Friday so they can be taken home in a child’s backpack at the end of the day.
The United for the Valley COVID-19 fund provided resources to purchase the needed technology to ensure that students are still able to access their assignments and stay connected with their teachers.
We have the power to rebuild our communities and reimagine a better future for our children if we work together to help young people struggling in the wake of this virus.
