Our main mission with this program is to identify kids who are hungry and find ways to feed them. We provide lunches for approximately 2-10 children per day whose families are experiencing financial difficulties. School staff members help to identify needs within the school.
Items are donated from
- Local businesses (Cobbs Bakery, nearby daycare, etc.)
- Volunteer sign up on Spirit Speaks where we ask for specific items (homemade baking, brown bags, ziplock bags, etc.)
- Extra Fun Food is frozen and used the following week
- St. Mary's church groups
How does this help our school? If kids are hungry they cannot learn and behaviour issues rise.
