Big Day of Giving 2020
24 Hours to Help Kids

Our kids still need us during the COVID-19 crisis, and we still need YOU! As food and nutrition insecurity increase among our elementary students, we’re holding weekly distributions of free Veggie STEM Boxes. The boxes contain healthy veggie ingredients to cook a homemade meal for 4. The kit includes a printed recipe, lesson plan and activity. Students can also follow along with our new online videos

“I think food literacy is so important. I try lots of new food and that makes me smart! I even help my little brother try new food too!” - Jade, 1st grade

Our goal is to reach 571 kids with our free take-home Veggie STEM Boxes. $35 funds 1 child. Donate now
