The goal of Hungry at Home program is to “bridge the gap” between school and home so children do not have to be hungry while away from school. Children in need receive a bag filled with six healthy meals and four snacks to be enjoyed during the weekend. The bags are discreetly distributed so the children remain anonymous. To be involved with Hungry at Home you could donate or volunteer. If you choose to donate you could donate monetarily or specific foods. Monetary donations are crucial. Food is purchased from the food bank at a low rate. It only costs $7 to feed one child for a weekend, that’s only $250 for an entire school year. Please make checks payable to “Hungry at Home.” All money goes to purchase food. All contributions are tax deductible. If you would rather send in food, listed below are the suggested items needed. Please ensure that any food items donated is non-perishable and do not require refrigeration or a can opener. Containers should be non-glass (preferably single serving) and easy for small hands to open without assistance. The yearly food drive held in November supports the Hungry at Home Project. If you are interested or have further inquiries please contact Regina Kimbrough, J.L. Lomax Hungry at Home Representative, by phone 333-8520 or email email@example.com.
Weekly bag pick up is held every Wednesday beginning at 9:00 a.m.
Volunteers are needed to pick up the bags from the old Valdosta High School and deliver them to JLL.
