Food Programs

Taking care and giving back. The power of a generous heart.

Assistance League charitable programs rely on hands-on involvement by our volunteers and spring from their generous hearts and minds. Each innovative program is designed to meet specific needs of individual communities. Assistance League member volunteers have achieved true transformation in their communities and have helped make a better world possible.

Food programs help alleviate childhood hunger

No child should be hungry in America. The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that one of every five children in America today does not have consistent access to adequate food. Food insecure children receive nutritious breakfasts and lunches during the school week, but lack proper nourishment on weekends. Assistance League chapters are working to fill the gap by inviting families to “shop” at weekend food pantries or sending home Friday backpacks with healthy non perishables so school kids can have more of the nutrition they need to succeed in school and life; and maintain better overall health, normal growth and development.
