The Problem

The project we are addressing is childhood hunger. As founder of a nonprofit for children, we have families without enough food. Children in the local after school programs lack food, because they live with extended family, do not qualify for food from agencies or because they are the working poor. We want to provide complete meals for families that can feed kids more than once and contain everything. We will distribute meals when children go home for a long breaks.

Our Plan

We plan to educate 150-175 people who will be invited to attend the nutrition seminars at the after school program. This will include parents, staff and students, many who do not qualify for assistance. Our success will be 150 bags distributed to serve an estimated 300-325 people.
