Our Mission

Funded completely by your generous donations, our mission is to provide supplemental food bags for at-risk school children every week during the school year. We are a local charitable organization with no dedicated funding stream. Since our founding, we have been, and remain, completely donation dependent, driven, and supplied.

Ways To Support Our Mission

Donate Monetarily

We are completely funded by donations. Our list of schools and students are continuously growing, which means our funds and supplies must continue to grow. If you feel led, you can donate right here through our website. If you are unable to contribute financially, check out the other ways you can support our mission. If nothing else, prayers are always appreciated for the children we serve, the schools we partner with, our generous donors, and our selfless volunteers.

Donate Supplies

You can drop these items off at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church in Fountain Inn.
Food needed (no nuts please): Granola bars, cereal bars, oatmeal, single-serving cereals, fruit cups, raisins, applesauce, cheese crackers, goldfish, graham crackers, fruit snacks, beef jerky, pop-top ravioli or spaghetti, mac n cheese, chicken noodle or tomato soup, ramen, fruit juice boxes, small bottles of water.
Gallon resealable plastic bags are also needed for packing.

Donate Time

We would love for you to join our team of volunteers who help pack the food bags, pick up and restock supplies, and deliver the bags to the schools. Please email, call, or message us on Facebook to inquire about how you can join our dedicated volunteers that support our mission. We are so grateful to each and every one of you who give up time to help these children in need. We cannot do this without our volunteers. Your selfless acts of service do not go unnoticed or unappreciated.
