In DFW, 1 in 4 children do not know where their next meal will come. Children struggling to find daily meals in our community need YOU! They are vulnerable and need a community that sees them and takes action. Together, we can make a difference one meal at a time! Invite your family and friends to join you for any of the following summer volunteer opportunities. We believe change happens when a community comes together!
SUMMER FEEDING PROGRAM
For at-risk children who partake in the Free And Reduced Lunches Program in school, summer is a hard time of the year because they miss out on 2 of their daily meals. This is a heavy burden for a child to carry. This summer, we are committed to help fill tummies in DFW through our Summer Lunch & Play feeding program! Not only are we providing food, but we will also provide mentors to play with and encourage the children. Sign up today!
So many at-risk children in our community do not know where their next meal will come from. You change lives with every meal you provide and every hour you give back. Volunteer and help sort donations, assemble orders for our Local Care Networks (local partners) and help pack food boxes for local distribution. There is something for everyone! Sign up today!
SNACK PACK DRIVE
Nutrition drives education! We provide snack packs for local Summer Education Programs to help at-risk children focus on learning and have their own snacks for the weekend. They find HOPE for a better tomorrow when they have food and one less worry. Here’s a list of items you can collect to make snack packs ready to enjoy!
We believe no child should go to bed hungry and together we can change the world! By volunteering, you can fight food insecurity in your community and see big smiles as they see a community that rallies around them!
