Hear uplifting testimonials and leave feeling hopeful knowing that your support is nourishing the dreams and potential of hungry children in Anchorage. There are currently 22,000 children in Anchorage facing hunger and food insecurity and we strive to alleviate this:
First, we provide meals to local community programs serving children. These meals are prepared and delivered to a majority of our partner sites, so that kids can have meals and snacks before and after school.
Secondly, we package and deliver thousands of bags filled with three meals each to eight Title I schools in Anchorage, There are enough bags for every student, to ensure that no child goes home hungry on Friday, when many after-school programs aren’t open and offering meals.
And finally, we are also able to provide meals even when school is out for summer. Our Summer Food Site Program partners with many of the same community programs we partner with during the school year, as well as a few more summer programs for kids. These meals are FREE to those 18 years of age and younger.
