Our mission is clear......
Weekend Survival Kits mobilizes communities to provide food on the weekends to children in grades K-5 who may otherwise go hungry ultimately helping remove barriers to academic success.
Too many children in OUR community are going hungry. With your help and support, this doesn't need to be the case. Take a look below at the schools enrolled in our Weekend Survival Kit program, and the numbers enrolled. We currently have additional schools on the waiting list. With your donation, we can offer these children peace of mind so that they never have to worry when, and if, their next meal will come.
Just $100 a year will feed a child every weekend during the school year! Please click on the donate button below.
Many hands make light work, and each of us can make a difference by working together to create communities of caring to help those in need.
10,000 Children in Ingham County struggle with hunger outside of school, making them 2x more likely to have to repeat a grade or need special education. On average, these children are 1-2 grade levels behind their peers.
The Weekend Survival Kit Program is used to serve the children that are food insecure during non-school hours, specifically on the weekends. Whether you want to become a volunteer or support our cause in other ways, you can make a difference.
