BENEFITING: MEALS OF HOPE INC
Who's Hungry? 1 out of 4 Local South Florida Kids suffers without enough food. This is nearly 2X the national average. If 64% of local elementary school students in South Florida’s wealthiest counties eat free breakfast & lunch at school, what do they eat over the weekends? Not enough. We say No Locals should go hungry. We believe our local children in Florida deserve better. Our kids going hungry are more likely to be sick, tired, depressed, experience colds, headaches, impaired focus more often, suffer from behavioral problems, emotional and academic delays - all because they're hungry. So we feed them. Together with Meals of Hope, we have come up with a solution to the problem for local kids through innovative weekend backpack program in local schools, carefully constructed to beat the nutrition minimums and hand-distributed through an efficient supply chain and a network of collaborative partnerships. All together we turn around the story for our local resilient kids from suffering to living and learning well again. Join Us! Your donation will help support the feeding of another local South Florida child. Thank you!
