THE STORY:

Welcome to OPERATION NOT ONE HUNGRY HOMELESS STUDENT DELRAY BEACH!

We are a group of concerned citizens determined to stop this:

146 homeless students in Delray Beach may endure 68 hours of hunger every weekend. 

Sad Truth: Palm Beach County has identified 4,356 students as homeless and in school in June, 2018.  An increase of up 8% over last year. 


Imagine the stress of being homeless on a young teen student, in the classroom, trying her hardest to pay attention, study and learn. Research confirms her uphill battle: food insecurity and lack of sleep compound her burden with an increased risk of ILLNESS, ABSENCES, STRESS, DIFFICULTY CONCENTRATING and CHRONIC FATIGUE make it nearly impossible for her to do her job as a student, to learn, and to dream of a brighter future.* The daily challenges of being homeless on a student are tough enough.  

You can give her one less worry, WHAT TO EAT. 

In Delray Beach, by November, 2018 we are feeding  over 94 children & teens known to be HOMELESS in our elementary schools, Village Academny, Carver Middle school and Atlantic Community High school. 


There’s hope for each one, in a simple weekend bag of kid-friendly foods dropped into their backpack at school every Friday afternoon to nourish them over the weekends. Enough calories, carbs and proteins to fuel brains & bodies.

$8 per weekend bag. 

$296 ends hunger for 1 Student for 37 weekends of the school year

$4,150 feeds all homeless at 1elementary school receiving 2 cases each week.

Every dollar adds up. 


$43,000 solves this problem. 

This is our goal. We believe $43,000 will be enough to feed EVERY DELRAY BEACH HOMELESS STUDENT all school year long, based on our estimates from this year.

Our challenge is to raise this funding. Help us. Spread the word. Donate today. Be the mover & shaker. Rock your world. Make a difference. Be a hero to one Delray Beach homeless student or a whole school.

TOGETHER WE WILL SAY "IN DELRAY BEACH, NOT ONE HOMELESS STUDENT GOES HUNGRY."

Until that day, Keep up the fight for our homeless students. We need you.

Thank you.

One clarification. Homeless student counts fluctuate & hunger does no affect every homeless child the same.  We plan to feed every homeless hungry student who is  currently homeless or at high risk of becoming homeless. We do this by partnering with School Liasons or Counselors and trusting these experts to identify & feed thier students who are homeless, near homeless and known to be going without food at home. Sysco is generously discounted shipping rates into each school, without who's logistical support we could not feed the homeless children as we do.
