Please help us to continue our POPUP SNACK program during the summer months of July and August. The new expense to run this program is estimated to be $80,000 each month and they will be fundraising in the community to support this NEW Summer initiative.
The Pop-Up Snack program has grown from serving 100 bags daily and is now distributing 500 bags daily for a total of 2500 per week. The snack bags contain enough snacks for four days and consist of bagels, cheese, fresh fruit, healthy crackers, yogurt, applesauce, cereal, and boiled eggs. In addition, many other items are added and change weekly, cans of beans, soup, lettuce, and the odd treat. Since mid-March we distributed approximately 25,000 bags which is approximately 500,000 items.
Your gift can help us to ensure that vulnerable children who can’t access student nutrition programs while schools are closed in our community can continue to receive nutritional food.
