As the beginning of a new school approaches, many community drives will focus on collecting backpacks and school supplies. What if those backpacks could be filled with food to help at-risk children have meals on the weekend? Undernourished children cannot learn as much or as fast or as well. Lack of enough nutritious food impairs a child’s ability to concentrate and perform well in school.
Thanks to a $60,000 Challenge Grant from The Jim Moran Foundation, Hunger Fight will be able to provide 561 children with weekend meals. The dollar for dollar match must be met by August 30, 2019. Hunger Fight needs your help to raise $30,000 to support its Feed the Backpack program.
So far just two donors have already donated $5,000 — one-sixth of what is needed! Donate here to help us meet the goal: https://idream.hungerfight.org/secure/cause_pdetails/NTYyMzQ=
