This organization is such a wonderful experience that had taught me how important it is to help others. The experiences I have taken away from here are something that will live with me since it’s taught me how helping others is so so important and it makes my day knowing a kid will be fed.

This organization is one that truly touches lives. I have had the privilege of helping at several “packing parties” and each time I have been filled with so much genuine joy knowing that each bag filled with food is making a massive difference in a child’s life.

This organization reaches a need that is often not met. Children should never have to wonder where their next meal is coming from or if they will have any snacks they can take with them to school. With the help of this organization, children across the metroplex are provided with nutritious staple food items and yummy snack options that they otherwise may not have the means for. This organization is a beautiful example of the kindness we should extend to others daily and the importance of nutritious meals for all so no one goes without.

No kid should go hungry in a nation as wealthy as ours! But millions of kids are living in hunger...With no kid hungry we can change the world as Weekend Wonder 4 Kidz is doing by donating food to many schools, communities, churches, etc! No gift is small when combined with others! Donate to Weekend Wonder 4 Kidz for this cause & save a kid from going hungry to bed!

To see compassion in a self centered ,selfish world we live in today...It's really heartwarming to see how weekend wonders works to feed kids and has for the past 5 years.
We tend to close our eyes to other people's problems and take our food for granted. This nonprofit works really hard to put food on the table of those who aren't that previleged. Every can matters,every hungry mouth you feed makes a big difference.
I am proud and happy to be a part of this wonderful nonprofit and I urge everyone to think of others who aren't that lucky and help feed them. One child at a time .

Eleven million children in the US live in food-insecure homes. This is unconscionable!
This crucial work helps children who are on free/subsidized lunch programs and therefore eat during the week whilst at school, but typically go hungry on the weekend. They deliver bags containing non-perishable food items to the schools on a weekly basis for these kids. I am proud to be associated with this cause.

A wonderful charity run by three women dedicated to helping children. These children would otherwise go hungry during school vacations as they are only fed through semester time. During these times of COVID where our children are attending school less frequently, it’s important that we continue to feed and take care of them. They have simplified this by setting up Amazon Smile, a no fuss way of donating, convenient to you. A charity definitely worth contributing to.

I loved working with this organization! I had the pleasure of participating in a bagging session and really enjoyed helping. I liked that the whole process of putting together the food packs was so hands-on. I think that this is a great initiative and I look forward to working with this non-profit again!

Hunger is a serious problem our kids deal with even in this day and age. Weekend Wonders 4 Kidz is a step in the right direction in dealing with hunger and serving kids in need of nutritious food.
Every week we deliver food packs to school kids in need of nutritious food on the weekend.
My experience with Weekend Wonders 4 Kidz has been very rewarding. It has made me realize that each of us can help in our unique way.
I have enjoyed being involved with various aspects of it like shopping for food items,bagging them and delivering the food to schools. It is a very satisfying feeling to know that you are making a difference and helping your community.
I encourage everyone to get involved with us and experience the joy of giving and join us in the fight against hunger.
