You can make a difference for hungry children in Hood County. Donations are sought to continue funding the Weekend Food for Kids program. Organizers hope to reach a goal of $25,000 by year’s end.
The weekend food program is now at every campus in the Granbury school system. Food is provided for some 494 students weekly.
The weekend food bags include two breakfast items such as instant oatmeal, cereal or Pop-Tarts. Two lunches and two dinners may include Vienna sausage, mac and cheese, soups, small ravioli and ramen noodles. Snack items like pudding or Jello cups, popcorn, granola bars or crackers may also be included. The food cost ranges from $5 to $5.15 for each weekend bag. Support is needed to keep this program running.
The Weekend Food for Kids program and the Monthly Community Pantry are under the umbrella of the Neighbors Feeding Neighbors nonprofit agency. Your donation to Neighbors Helping Neighbors will be used entirely for the Weekend Food Kids program.
See P. 12B for more information.
Monetary donations to the Weekend Food for Kids program can be mailed to Neighbors Feeding Neighbors at P.O. Box 1611, Granbury Texas 76049. Call 817-573-7066 with questions.
