On March 10th you can join Feeding Northeast Florida by participating in National Pack your Lunch Day.
Make your lunch hour count by challenging your friends, family, and coworkers to bring their lunch and donate what they would have spent to help those who struggle with hunger.
Every $1 donated to Feeding Northeast Florida provides 7 meals.
Today in Northeast Florida, thousands of families are having to choose between going to the grocery store and filling their prescriptions, getting the car fixed, or paying their rent on time. For many of these families, hunger was not always a problem, but because of the loss of a job, unexpected car repairs, or illness, these families have found themselves in crisis. Hunger is at the root of many issues that affect the community. Children who go to school hungry have trouble focusing, workers are less productive and more prone to accidents, and many health issues are aggravated by a lack of access to nutritious food. By supplying a steady source of fresh, healthy food to those in need, Feeding Northeast Florida is working to stabilize families and communities.
