Together, we can solve the ongoing problem of child hunger.

Did you know that many kids in Iredell County, North Carolina come to school Monday morning hungry because they haven’t eaten all weekend? Child hunger is a problem we’re battling for local children here at Food For Days, and our charitable organization stops 72 hours of hunger every weekend of the school year for many children in our local community.

Students in need are identified by in-school counselors and teachers. After a hungry child is identified, they receive a permission slip, which needs to be signed by a parent, indicating that they can receive weekend meals. We send every child home with a backpack filled with two breakfasts, two lunches, and two dinners, as well as drinks and snacks, so they come back to school on Monday nourished and ready to learn! We pack our weekend meal bags at packing sites beforehand in generic packaging and deliver them to schools on Thursday, so they can be discreetly handed out and taken home on Friday afternoon.

A TRUE STORY

(one of many, many True Stories)

Everywhere this elementary aged girl went, she walked slowly with her head down.
A Counselor noticed, did an assessment and got her into the backpack meals program.

Then every time the girl passed the Counselor in the hallway she would smile BIG and ask

 

Do I get my backpack meal this Friday?!”
