Welcome to your new club!
How we started:
Our club formed in fall 2016 from a desire to make a difference. One of the most compelling stories we heard came from spouses who were teachers, and also from the children of our club members. In our local public schools, when it was snack time, some children had food and some had none. Our kids were asking to bring snacks from home to provide for their friends. This was the genesis of our club and the Snacks@Schools program. We officially became a 501(c)3 charitable organization in August 2017.
Our primary program:
Our primary program is Snacks@Schools. We know kids learn better when they’re not hungry, and while school lunch programs help, they still leave empty stomachs in the afternoon. That’s where you come in. With your help, we can provide snacks directly to schools, at no cost to teachers, to bridge that gap between lunch and the end of the day.
