THE CHILDREN’S HUNGER PROJECT

In Brevard County, more than 50% of children utilize free and reduced meal programs through their schools, and, though students are provided for during the week, the weekend is often unaccounted for. As a result, many kids are at risk of childhood hunger and malnutrition.  The Children’s Hunger Project, Inc. exists to help elementary schools provide food for the weekend to as many kids as possible every week.

Each week on Friday, The Children's Hunger Project helps as many elementary school children as possible to carry food home for the weekend in their backpack.

 Our goal is to help students grow and maintain healthy eating patterns so that they can learn more when returning to school Monday morning. Click here to see more videos.

OVER

0%
Over 60% Of Brevard Students are on the Free or Reduced Lunch Program
Brevard County Schools, to their great credit, are able to provide a free breakfast plus a healthy lunch through the program during the week. For some students, though, lunch on Friday is the last regular meal they will receive until the following Monday. The Children’s Hunger Project, Inc. provides weekend meals and fights childhood hunger and malnutrition during the school year. Teachers and school administrators, those on the front line of caring for our children while they are away from their parents during the week, know firsthand of the weekend hunger problem. The teachers know as they wave goodbye on Fridays which students will not have proper nutrition over the weekend. They know which students will arrive Monday morning ill-prepared to learn properly.
