What a year it has been!
We started delivering bags in early September of 2016 and we have seen so much support that we have been expanding our reach since then.
In just 4 months we have gone from delivering 51 weekend food bags to children in need on the weekends during the first week to an amazing 222 weekend food bags! That’s 222 children that will not go hungry on the weekends! We plan to keep expanding until we have solved childhood hunger!
We could not do this without amazing the support in our community! We wish we could name each person and business that has helped. Each of them has played an amazing role in helping us to deliver as much food as we have this year!
