16.2 million children in America struggle with hunger.
Food insecurity remains a problem for many children. Join us to help make a difference!
As families struggle with poverty, it’s extremely difficult to insure
that children receive adequate and healthy food.
Centreville Presbyterian Church (CPC) is reaching out to make a difference with our partner school London Towne Elementary School. LTES is a 1,000 student Kindergarten – 6th grade school in western Fairfax County (Virginia). As a Title I school, many of these students have special needs, including educational, emotional and financial.
CPC is coming alongside the school to help make a difference in the lives of the students, including mentoring, event volunteers, summer reading programs, and the Weekend Food Program. The Weekend Food Program feeds children whose families live below the poverty line and have limited resources. As the result of the Weekend Food Program, children return to school on Monday having had a weekend with better nutrition and better prepared to learn.
The weekly cost of the Weekend Food Program is approximately $300. We purchase food items in bulk and typically spend $3-$4 per child.
THANK YOU to everyone who helped us to reach our goal to fully fund the 2018-19 school year.
We have begun now to receive donations to begin the 2019-2020 school year.
Would you be able to help with the Weekend Food Program?
