PROJECT OVERVIEW

This program is designed to provide children from low-income households with nutritious kid friendly groceries for the weekend when free school lunches and breakfasts are not provided.  Currently, 16.5% of students in Pittsylvania County are "Food Insecure."

 

IMPACT STATEMENT:

While we decide what groceries to buy for the weekend, or what restaurant to visit, there are local children whose stomachs are empty on weekends when school meals are unavailable.  We were happy to take on this project to provide nutritious food here in our local area, knowing that we are helping a child who's hungry.
