You can  make a difference


We have been providing food to children since 2010.

At the end of the 2017-18 school year with a lot of help from community organizations we were serving 769 families with 1,538 children in 34 schools.  

Your Tax deductible donations go directly to the purchase of food for children in need.

We are an all volunteer non-profit providing food each weekend directly to children in need.

Our Model is very simple.  The more funding we receive, the more children we can help.

Each school we serve has established a network of volunteers.  Principals, Counselors, and Teachers work together to identify the children with the greatest need.  The school will place an order for a four to six week supply of food with Take Action INC.  TAI forwards that order to 

the nearest Grocery Outlet Store where the order is pulled and staged for pickup on the designated day.  Volunteers from the school pick up the food, take it for storage at the school and custom load each backpack for take home the last school day of the week.  The intent is to provide for younger siblings that may be in the home and to also insure the food packed meets and diet restrictions the children may have.

We believe we are packing hope one backpack at a time.  You can pack hope too!

Please consider becoming a monthly donor.  For as little as $10.00 we can 

provide weekend meals and snacks to a child in need.  Just click on the donate button for a one time donation or to set up monthly giving.  Thanks for caring

This past school year we have added a lot more nourishing food, including fresh apples, oranges and whole grain crackers for snacks.
