No child should deal with hunger during the school year

Please help feed a child every weekend throughout the entire school year for only $66.50. Your tax-deductible donation will make a difference!

In Michigan 1 out of 5 kids are food insecure and qualify for free or reduced lunches. These children often have challenges in school because they are hungry. The federal program which provides breakfasts and lunches levels the playing field and makes it possible for these children to overcome obstacles to learning. However, food insecurity continues over the weekend, holiday and summer breaks. The Weekend Survival Kits program was designed to make food kits available for any child who may need it, this means that these participating children will not come back to school hungry and unable to focus on learning.

Your gift will help the Weekend Survival Kits program purchase 100% of food the for the kits from the Feeding America network / local Food Banks. Local service organizations and churches do the heavy lifting of packing and delivering the kits to the more than 60 schools and nearly 3,500 kids participating in the program.

Your continuing support of this project will help Weekend Survival Kits formerly known as Many Hands Inc. (a Michigan based 501(c)(3) nonprofit) reach our goal of consistently feeding all of the kids who need the support over their breaks from school. The Weekend Survival Kits program focus is currently elementary school-aged kids in Michigan and with your help we can continue to grow.
