19. Food 2 Kids Food of the Month!

For many children throughout northeast Georgia, school is much more than a place to learn; it is also the only reliable source of food in their lives. Consequently, weekends become a time of uncertainty and hunger anxiety. From the time they leave school on Friday afternoons until they return Monday morning, these most vulnerable children may not know when or even if they’ll be able to get a meal.

Believing that this is unacceptable, the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia launched its childhood hunger initiative. Through this, the Food 2 Kids program evolved; a program designed to alleviate hunger on nights and weekends when other food is not available. In January 2008, in partnership with The Junior League of Athens, the program started small, serving approximately 80 students in one county. Today, the program has grown to serve over 1800 children in northeast Georgia.

The program aims to bridge the weekly weekend hunger gap by providing free sacks of child-friendly and child-specific foods that are easy to open, nutritious, and do not require any cooking. The Food 2 Kids program provides approximately six meals and two snacks each weekend that school is in session (40 weeks) to previously identified school children in Banks, Barrow, Clarke, Habersham, Hart, Jackson, Madison, Oglethorpe, Rabun, White, and Stephens counties.

We are asking all FACS faculty, staff, and students to help us show the food bank and our local kids some love! It’s easy! Every month, we will share the food of the month through FACS Connection, the hallway monitors, and a sign outside our door. The next time you are shopping for groceries for yourself, pick up one (or more!) of these items and drop them in the barrel located outside the Student Success and Advising Center in 112 Dawson.

Thank you for your help!
