Food for Kids is a collaboration between Second Harvest and public schools within the food bank’s 18-county service area. The program provides healthy, easily-prepared food to some of the most vulnerable children in our community. These vulnerable children likely miss meals on a regular basis. Teachers at each school compile a list of students in their classroom who may be at risk of hunger to receive food from the program.
These children are discreetly given food for themselves (and any siblings they may have at home) every Friday throughout the school year. Reports of improved self-esteem, behavior and concentration among Food for Kids participants are common.
