Spring brings hope, just as you do for our hungry kids!

On this first day of spring, our psyches are ready to embrace light and warmth and the promise of a beautiful season. A similar description can be used regarding the children who are impacted by your support. Substitute psyches with hungry children and season with future. All children are blossoms slowly unfurling towards their fullest potential. Your donations help provide an important component for their development.

March is Nutrition Month

  • 1 in 5 kids is food insecure
  • 34% of elementary-aged children in the northland qualify for free and reduced lunch
  • The BackSnack program in the Northland has grown from 1,000 to 2,930 kids served in the past four years

A Limerick for you!

Who knew March had so many reasons to celebrate? In honor of the beautiful support you provide, a special limerick……….

Hungry kids in the northland were plenty,

Feeding all would cost a pretty penny;

Along came supporters, with generous hearts,

Whose dollars and labors did happily impart,

Full tummies and great thanks from so many.
