What We Do

The Children’s Hunger Project is dedicated to helping elementary school children in need by providing them with food to take home for weekends and during school breaks. Our goal is to ensure that children have access to basic nutrition when they may not have access to school meals. Our food assistance program includes non-perishable items such as canned ravioli, rice with chicken and vegetables, breakfast bars, cereal, milk, juice boxes, and other kid-friendly food items.

We understand the importance of providing easy-to-handle food items that require no cooking, as many children may not have access to cooking facilities or may lack adult supervision. Our food items are lightweight and easy for children to handle and consume, even in the absence of electricity. By providing this food assistance, On Monday, the kids return to school but with a better and healthier foundation for learning.

We are committed to making a difference in the lives of elementary school children by ensuring that they have basic nutrition throughout the week. With the help of our volunteers and donors, we are able to provide this weekly food assistance and positively impact the lives of children in need.
