The Health First Fight Child Hunger 5K Run/Walk 2019 had a record number of participants, vendors and supporters! Many thanks to the wonderful sponsors for this event. Thanks to ongoing support, we have served Brevard County children with weekend packages of food without missing a single week since 2010. To continue serving and help those still on the wait list for weekend food fuels our passion and compassion to work on behalf of hungry kids in Brevard.
Bob and Jessica Gabordi again served as honorary chairs for this 5K

The Children’s Hunger Project recently celebrated its 8th anniversary helping feed hungry chidren in Brevard, with an Open House & Family Fun Day, complete with ribbon cutting, a barbeque, live music, police officers with police dogs, a fire truck, and more.
It was an official "thank you" to Bruce Nelson of Cocoa and Coastal Hyundai for allowing TCHP to use their building for the past three years. It serves as a location for our many packing events, adequate food storage, and office space. Bruce carries on his father's tradition of giving back to the community, and the building was named in 2015 as The Bruce Nelson Child Hunger Center.
More children in Brevard are now able to receive weekend food packages because of your help! Share with friends and co-workers to join our campaign. Contribute just $12.50 per month to help feed a hungry child for one entire school year. That's less than 42 cents per day - one less latte per week can mean a world of difference to a hungry child! Your support, however great or small, benefits kids at risk of weekend hunger. Donate here
The Children’s Hunger Project was selected by the Wells Fargo Brevard Volunteer Chapter to receive a $5,000 grant. The check was recently presented at the TCHP office. The group not only supports feeding hungry kids through providing this grant, they volunteered their time to help complete some projects at TCHP that have been on our wish list! Thanks so much, Wells Fargo!
Merritt Island Christian Church, or MiChurch, is on the Space Coast of sunny Florida in the heart of Merritt Island.
Cheryl Cominsky, TCHP Community Outreach Coordinator, met with Elder Tony Derbyshire and his wife, Clare of Mi Church who expressed a strong desire to "adopt" MILA Elementary School in Merritt Island. They packed 560 food packages in November at their church and that's enough food for MILA through February!
St. Marks Episcopal Academy in Cocoa, FL organized a packing event for all their students to participate in, once again proving that "kids helping kids" is a wonderful way to make a difference for all children.
