With all of us working TOGETHER, we can accomplish great things!
We don't realize the amount of people who live around us or go to school with our children that face struggles each day. Our main fundraising event focuses on the "Summer Food Program for Children". This program provides additional meals to those families with school age children who visit the West Chester Food Cupboard during the summer months. Many children in our school district rely on school supplied meals as their primary meal of the day and in the summer they don't have this option. The program provides students with nutritional food options during the summer, with the belief "NO ONE SHOULD GO HUNGRY!"
In addition to this event, we also hold food drives throughout the year. The food drive benefits clients of the West Chester Food Cupboard by adding additional items to the shelves for clients to enjoy.
Each year my goal is to bring awareness about food insecurity in our area and encourage individuals to get involved in our community,
