A Heart Like His Foundation Inc.; a local 501(c)3 charitable organization has just launched a new program to feed local hungry children. The organization, founded by Nancy May, has two programs to feed the hungry. The original program: Kids Against Hunger – Ft. Lauderdale, was designed to significantly reduce the number of undernourished and starving children around the world. Thousands of meals have been shipped to 7 impoverished countries around the world.
After hearing about the great numbers of local homeless children in Broward County, Nancy May decided to tackle the problem by launching a new program called Friday Kid's Pak.
This new program is designed to feed homeless / at risk children over the weekend when school meals are not available. These children have no control over their homelessness or family situation – they are innocent in their circumstances. These at risk children are fed in school during the week, however many leave school on Friday not knowing if they will eat a meal before returning to school on Monday.
Our goal is to provide these children a Friday Kid's Pak containing: 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 snacks, 2 fruit cups, 2 milk boxes and 2 juice boxes. The children will receive their Friday Kid's Pak from a school administrator every Friday during the school year.
To make this happen, we need help from the community. We are looking for churches, clubs, organizations, and local business to get involved. Please consider hosting a food drive, making a monetary donation, or donating warehouse space which would allow us to allocate more money on collecting and distributing food to more children.
Here is a list of items needed for the Friday Kid's Pak - food program:
- Single Serve Cereal
- Pop Tarts
- Cereal Bars
- Single serve Mac & Cheese bowl
- Single serve pop-top Spaghetti O's, Beef a Roni, Beef Stew, etc.
- Single serve Fruit cups
- Single serve shelf stable Milk
- Single serve shelf stable Chocolate Milk
- Single serve Snacks
- Single serve Juice Boxes
Please consider adding some of these items to your weekly grocery shopping list to help provide for these at-risk kids in our community.
If your place of business would like to be a Food Drop-Off Location, please contact us.
