Last year (2014) we distributed 8,540 weekend meal packages to children in Martinsville and Henry County!
With a monthly pledge of just $20, you can sponsor a child!
Yes, that’s enough to fill a backpack, every week, and ensure that one less child is left to struggle with the effects of childhood hunger.
You can also become a Backpack Buddy with a
one-time donation of $200.

Food for Kids makes a difference in the lives of impoverished children by providing kids identified by teachers, counselors, and school nurses with discrete backpacks, filled with nutritious, child-friendly foods to utilize on weekends and holidays when other resources – such as school breakfast and lunch programs – aren’t available. The program is designed to meet the needs of children who rely on these resources as their only, or only reliable, source of food.
