Beginning with just one school and 27 children ten years ago, four local businessmen sought to solve the problem of children at risk of weekend malnutrition and created The Children’s Hunger Project. Since then The Children’s Hunger Project has helped as many elementary school children as possible to carry kid-friendly food home in their backpack. On Monday, the kids return to school with a better and healthier foundation for learning.
We now serve over 45 schools in our county and over 2,400 children. Our desire is that no child goes hungry on weekends. Thanks to our many volunteers and supporters, we have served Brevard County children without missing a single week since 2010, even during hurricanes and the pandemic.
