Full Heart Full Bellies

Full Heart Full Bellies was created to provide prepared meals for children in the Bronx, NY grades K-12 July 6- August 28 (we are EXTENDING this program through 2020). In the Bronx, 31 percent of all children live in food insecure homes; that is, one in four – do not always know where their next meal is coming from. In light of these numbers, Food Bank For New York City called for enactment of the New York City Council’s proposal that free school lunch be provided to all children in the City’s public schools, noting that it would help end the stigma surrounding free school lunch. With most summer programs canceled due to COVID-19 we want to assure that children have at least one hot meal 3 times a week to fill their bellies and help fill the growing meal gap that exists for struggling families. 100% of your donation will go to food prep and packaging. We are so grateful for your assistance in getting our Full Heart Full Bellies Initiative funded as these children need your help in this ongoing fight!
