There are many children in our community that receive free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program and the National School Breakfast Program.

For many of these children, school meals may be the only meals they eat. What happens when they go home over the weekend?

CCNE is partnering with the Richland 2 School District and Spring Valley High School to identify these kids in our area and get them the food they need for the weekend. 

How does it work? 

We collect non perishable food, pack them in bags, bring them to the schools of Fridays, and the social workers discretely make them available for students to pick up.
