This group of volunteers work so hard to bring food to children of Putnam County who otherwise would not have food at home on weekends. For most of the children serviced by Feed the Need a simple jar of peanut butter and jelly may be all they have until school breakfasts. Blessings go out to the Board Members who keep this non-profit honest and steadfast.

We are so blessed to have this organization in our community! The volunteers are so amazing to spend their time helping those in need. My grandson (Jedidiah) asked for jars of peanut butter and jelly for his 6th birthday party.. He was so excited to share his donations to James A Long Elementary School to be given to Feed the Need! YES, he has asked to be able to do it again... Thank you for caring for our children and community.

Not only does this organization fill a huge resource gap in our community to help provide a safety net for children who have limited access to food at home, it also provides an outlet for the local community to get involved! My middle and high school aged Girl Scout robotics team had the opportunity to volunteer last year and ended their service hours changed and humbled after learning about the depth of food insecurities in our own community. These girls will one day be leaders who rise to challenges in their communities to make a difference.

Putnam County, FL has over 700 children considered homeless with living conditions that vary from living in tents in a wooded area, sharing a home with friends or family, living in hotels, or living in a shelter. Close to 90% of these children only get a meal on a school day. Feed the Need of Putnam County Inc. helps make sure that food is sent out to ensure the children will have a meal on weekends and school breaks. This is a wonderful program and is desperately needed in Putnam county, FL. I have assisted with picking up food from this program and delivering it to children in need. I absolutely love Feed the Need of Putnam County and thank God for the volunteers that take their time to help the children! This program is truly a blessing!

It’s a pleasure to help with Feed the Need of Putnam County. What a blessing it is to our community and to the children benefiting from the program. The amount of youth in our community that are food scarce is so disheartening. Feed the need steps in and fills in some of these gaps. It’s an amazing feeling knowing you are helping children in need. The program has grown tramendously and will only continue to grow and support our community’s children.

I have had the privilege to work with this organization for the last 3 years.
When I saw a need for food for students at a school I contacted them and got involved!
I have been delivering food to the school and also taking up donations at my office to deliver
to specific schools each month.
What a blessing this is for our community!
I believe in this organization. I started as a volunteer and now I serve on the board.
Thank you!!

Feed the Need has been such a blessing to Putnam county. The children know that lots of people care and they don't go hungry. It has also united the town in this endeavor to care for all of it's citizenry; most especially the young ones. The children will grow up with such a dramatically different outlook than they would have had, had no one cared. Hopefully, they will pay it forward when they grow up

I volunteer with this program and I think it is awesome! If it was not for this program there are hundreds of children in our county that would have nothing to eat over the weekends. It is really nice to work with others who are unselfish and giving from their hearts on a regular basis to help our children. Over all I think this is a great program and ran by a wonderful group of people.
