Review for Hunger2Hope, Southaven , MS, USA
From the beginning of this fledgling dream of giving hope to kids through a back pack till today when it is becoming a full on outreach it has been a joy to watch the team grow and give and pray and cry. Never have I seen such a group of dedicated individuals whose desire is not for self-aggrandizement but simply to serve kids and teachers. Completely desiring to reach out and to serve more.
The process is simple - a backpack gets filled by volunteers with proteins, vegetables, fruits (canned and fresh), a few snack items, breakfast items, a dessert item and a juice or water. The backpack is delivered to a child that has been identified as needing food on the weekends. It is given discretely by the child's teacher on Friday with the simple instructions to bring the back pack back to school on Monday. Some of the students are "adopted" by the volunteers that will write encouraging notes to the students or put in simple gifts or games.
You can get involved through donations of time - stocking shelves, filling back packs, Talent - helping build shelves, organizing food groups, helping reach more schools, organizing food drives, Treasure - financial donations, purchasing food and bringing it to the pantry.
Partner with us and see what joy and hope mean to kid who has neither.
