EVERY CHILD DESERVES ADEQUATE FOOD
A very special event on Tuesday, February 15th from 12pm-1pm, will showcase The Children’s Hunger Project’s exceptional work in collaboration with the community, to help address the problem of weekend hunger for local children. This event has limited seating. If you’d like to join us, please send us an email or call 321-610-1900.If you are unable to join us and would like to help, please click here to donate.
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. The Children’s Hunger Project serves over 2,900 local elementary school children in 47 schools throughout Brevard, and teachers tell us there is still a need. Just $16 per month feeds one child on weekends for the entire school year! TCHP also helps feed children during school holiday breaks,and during the summer in partnership with United Way of Brevard for the Feed and Read program.
The Children’s Hunger Project works with nutritionists from Brevard Public Schools to ensure the children served are getting quality nutrition. All of our food is prepped and packed by volunteers and delivered to schools by volunteers.
When kids return to school at the beginning of the week, it is with a better and healthier foundation for learning. The goal is to ensure that elementary school children, at least on weekends, will have nutrition.
Speakers for our 2022 event:
- Terri Bagby, Endeavour Elementary – Senior Coordinator of Brevard Public Schools
- Corky Calhoun – Pastor at Georgianna Church
- Third grade students from Palm Bay Elementary with Barbara Miller
- Dr. Mark Mullins, Superintendent of Brevard Public Schools

Past comments about the event:
“Grateful to be part of an extraordinary and extremely dedicated group of volunteers, staff, board members and community but sad that we have to be in existence at all. We came together to do great work today. There’s much more to do! Special shout to my beautiful friends who continually support me and all the causes that make our community better!”
“Beyond heart moving. I’m in love with this organization…thank you for opening up so many closed eyes.” Mic Payne
“I have had the privilege to run The Children’s Hunger Project 5K and attended their annual Love a Kid Luncheon which calls on community members to come together to meet the over 2,000 children (1,000 on the waiting list) in Brevard county that would otherwise go hungry from lack of resources for food in the weekend. This is an amazing organization with above 80 % of all funds raised going directly to serving the needs of children in our county.” Shushana Vignier
