We’re a small local group focused on providing food insecure children with weekend meals.
We founded Agape Meals for Kids in the fall of 2021, as the coronavirus pandemic continued to drag on and disproportionately impact children living with food insecurity.
Children are receiving school meals during the week, but there were no weekend food programs for them. Many of these children left school each Friday, knowing their next meal wouldn’t come until Monday when they were back in school.
Everyone agrees that children shouldn’t go hungry. Period.
Agape Meals for Kids fundraises and collects non-perishable food donations throughout the week. Our volunteers meet to pack backpacks with enough food to feed each child with meals, snacks, milk, and juice for the weekend.
Then, we deliver these backpacks to schools where they are distributed at the end of the school day.
