“I am so happy… my kids will eat tonight because of you” -Kathy, mother of three
50% of Chatham County school children receive free or low-cost meals at school through the federal school lunch program because their families live at or near poverty level.
Without these meals during the summer, these kids get little or no proper nutrition.
CORA Food Pantry created SNACK! (Summer Nutritional Assistance for Chatham Kids) to provide food for nutritious weekday summer meals for these Chatham County school children.
Become a SNACK Angel and help CORA provide more than 100,000 meals to disadvantaged school children during the summer.
For more about the SNACK! Program go to our SNACK! page.
Only $13 a month will support one child for the entire summer!
SNACK! Angel sponsorships provide a low income Chatham County child with enough food for 5 breakfasts, 5 lunches and daily healthy snacks for each week during the summer break. It also helps CORA provide more fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, and more milk to children whose families too often make less healthy choices due to low income.
Children who get the proper nutrition perform better in school, are healthier as adults and are less likely to continue the cycle of poverty. You can make the future brighter for a Chatham County Child.
**You can also sponsor a child for a one-time donation of $150 by clicking on the donate button to the right. Be sure to type SNACK Angel in the “Purpose” line of the donation form.
