Empowering Children and Fighting Hunger One Backpack at a Time
41 percent of school age children in Kettering qualify for the free/reduced lunch program
700 students in Kettering receive nutritional bags of food to sustain them over the weekend when school breakfasts and lunches are not available.
19 elementary/middle schools in Kettering are being served.
Counselors choose the at-risk students who need weekend nutrition.
The school counselors place bags of food discreetly in the student's backpacks on Fridays.
Every week we provide the children with individual servings of fruit cups, prepared pudding, vegetables, cereal, applesauce, microwavable ravioli, mac & cheese and 100% fruit juice.
We empower Kettering school-age children to overcome obstacles caused by poverty
