Did you know that 27.6% of children in NC struggle with where their next meal will come from.* The families of these students often don't earn enough money to feed the entire household sufficiently. For many students, the school provided meals are the only meals they will eat all day. During the weekend, these students do not have access to school meals and can often go the duration of the weekend hardly eating anything. This lack of food impacts many aspects of a student's life from schoolwork, interaction with others, and even personal health. Food for Families is a ministry that has sent home a bag of food for these children and their families to have over the weekend.
Thank You to Our Partners
To fill the food gap over the weekend for those students known to have insufficient food.
