37,945 FOOD PACKAGES DELIVERED
During the school year just ended, we delivered 37,945 packages of food to kids that were hungry and undernourished. Thanks to all of you that give your prayers or money or time. Special thanks to United Way of Brevard and Sharing Central of Central Brevard as they were responsible for making possible about a third of our deliveries each week.
“I wanted to say thank you! The Children’s Hunger Project helped so many children at Roy Allen this year. I wish you could have seen their faces every Friday morning when they picked up the food. The children were smiling from ear to ear. This is truly an amazing program that directly makes a difference every weekend. Have a great summer. We are excited to participate again next year.”
- Kathy Jefferson, Assistant Principal, Roy Allen Elementary School
We will be adding more schools during the upcoming school year and adding hundreds of additional kids to the over 1,000 that were on our program each week during the 2013-2014 school year

Child Hunger Summit is Tuesday, October 28
The Summit is designed for religious leaders and will bring awareness of the significant hunger issues local kids are facing. Leaders will learn how their local congregations can help these kids in our own backyard. Please post this on Facebook, talk about the Summit on Twitter and have people urge their own leaders to attend.
Want to tell others about us?
Here's our "story":
The Children's Hunger Project is a non-profit charity that provides packages of weekend food for kids that teachers know are coming to school hungry on Monday mornings. Schools provide a free breakfast and a healthy lunch. But many children who are eligible for a free lunch at school go hungry on weekends. $150 a year provides a weekend food package for a child during the entire school year.
That is our story. Please “share” it with your Facebook friends, at your office, and at whatever religious congregation you attend. Click here to see what others are doing to help our kids. Share this newsletter and our website with others.
Do you have some free time this month?
We will be hosting the 2nd Annual Child Hunger Summit in October. The Summit is designed to bring awareness of the significant hunger issues local kids are facing and how local congregations can help generate the change necessary to help these kids in our own backyard.
Volunteers are needed to call religious congregations and faith-based organizations to let them know about the upcoming Summit.
We will have an organizational meeting for our Child Hunger Summit volunteers THIS WEDNESDAY, June 4 at 10:00AM at our office on Sarno Road.
