How does Hand2Hand provide food for students?
One church is partnered with one school to provide food to children identified to be at risk of going without food over the weekends. Typically, backpacks are provided in the student's locker every Friday while the student is in class. Nutritious food is provided in the backpack, such as granola bars, cereal, fruit cups, and other food items for one or two meals. The food provided is intended to alleviate hunger for one child over the weekend.
