I would like to address the issues of Child Hunger, Homeless Students, Ladders, Sandwiches, and Good News.
The main ingredient in allowing a young child to have a positive school experience is proper nutrition. This is more important than even having good schools! KIDS SHOULD NOT BE COMING TO SCHOOL HUNGRY ON MONDAY MORNINGS!
I recently heard of a student who was sleeping in the dugout of a baseball field. He still attended school! STUDENTS SHOULD NOT BE SLEEPING OUTSIDE OF A SAFE ENVIRONMENT!
Many of the kids we serve struggle each weekend. Kids are going hungry but the Palm Bay Firefighters are doing something about it.
One of our largest sponsors is Bryan Price and his five Jersey Mike's Subs locations.
The Month of Giving is coming soon.
Much good is happening with the community supporting us. Check out our website. Click here

The Children's Hunger Project is a nonprofit charity providing packages of weekend food for kids who teachers know are coming to school hungry on Monday mornings.
Schools provide a free breakfast and lunch. Yet, many children who are eligible for a free lunch at school go hungry on weekends.
$150 a year or $12.50 monthly provides a weekend food package for one child during the entire school year.
