LINKS WEEKEND FOOD PROGRAM​

Thank so much for your support again this year! See you again this fall as we resume collections for the

2020-2021 school year.

our MIssion:

​​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 IQ

  • Lower academic achievement

 

HELP BY donating either food items or money (which is converted into food). Your donations are taken weekly to the schools' counselors who pack a variety of food items into a bag then, confidentially, pass these weekend bags to the identified students on Fridays, prior to dismissal.

Your support, as always, is truly appreciated! Below are the items we consistently need. You can purchase them and drop them off at church, or order them at the links provided:
