LINKS WEEKEND FOOD PROGRAM
WE WANT TO ensure that some of our neediest students have access to nutritious, kid-friendly, and easy to prepare food on the weekends throughout the school year.
BECAUSE students whose families rely on free breakfast and lunch served at school may struggle financially to provide healthy food for their students on the weekends.
CONSEQUENCES of hunger and poor nutrition can lead to:
Weaker immune system
Shorter attention span
Lower academic achievement
HELP BY making a financial donation either in person by check to Christ's Church or electronically.
