Can you imagine being in elementary school and not having enough food to eat? We hope you can join us for a really fun day that has a direct benefit to kids in Manchester who count on our help each week!
We began providing 65 bags a week for children at one school but have now grown to serve almost 400 children each week at 7 schools! Our amazing growth has been the product of school guidance counselors and principals communicating with each other about the great results their kids have experienced and reaching out to us to help more children from new schools. We have amazing volunteers who help us to pack and deliver the bags each week but the most difficult part about Fueled By Kids is finding the money to buy the food each week.
There are always more children right here in Manchester, NH that could benefit from our help, and we don’t want to say no to any of them while continuing to feed the children we have already committed to help for the year. We are inviting you so that we can continue on our mission to end childhood food insecurity. We hope to be able to help even more children next year but we cannot do it without your support. Each bag we deliver on Fridays costs about $5, which means each child we feed costs about $200 per year. For this school year alone, we will have delivered over 13,500 bags of food! Please come to our event so that we can continue on our mission to end childhood food insecurity, we cannot do it without your support!
I can’t wait to see you there!
