This summer we are feeding 1056 of these hungry kids — that means distributing enough food for more than 100,000 meals. This program is already underway – June 16 through August 22 – and it’s called . . .
Because Chatham is a large rural county (709 square miles) with scant public transportation, federal programs that require serving prepared meals at a central location are not practical here in the summer for the families of these kids. A new kind of program was needed to better ensure accessibility and to better address the transportation difficulties of those families who needed services. CORA Food Pantry created SNACK! (Summer Nutritional Assistance for Chatham Kids) in 2009 to address these challenges and to help assure adequate nutrition year-round for these disadvantaged children.
