Big Day of Giving 2021
24 Hours to Help Kids
Our kids need YOU! Since schools closed last year due to COVID-19, food and nutrition insecurity have increased among our elementary students. We’ve continued weekly distributions of Veggie STEM Boxes with all the healthy veggie ingredients to cook a homemade meal for 4. The kit includes a printed recipe, lesson plan and activity.
Now that some students are returning to school, we are headed back to in-person classes. We’re partnering with afterschool programs in low-income elementary schools to bring free food literacy class back to our kids.
“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
Help us continue to reach more than 100 students and their families each week with our free take-home Veggie STEM Boxes and in-person afterschool classes. Donate now.
