Fight Childhood Hunger Week
April 8, 2019 - April 14, 2019
April 8-14th is Fight Childhood Hunger Week
Fight Childhood Hunger Week kicks off on April 8th, 2019, and we’re excited to participate in Montana No Kid Hungry‘s statewide initiative once again. FCHW is an event that is exclusive to Montana and will run from April 8th – 14th. During this week, the 5th Annual Wear Orange Wednesday (WOW) campaign will be April 10th. Orange represents child hunger awareness, and by wearing this color collectively on the same day we can bring awareness to the challenges that food insecure children in Montana face. https://mt.nokidhungry.org/awareness-resources
Here at the Gallatin Valley Food Bank, we support kids and their families through a variety of programs including the Healthy KidsPack, Middle and High School Kids’Pantry and over the summer months with Summer Lunch.
Our KidsPacks are distributed to about 450 bags each week to 21 schools across three counties. Kids’Pantry serves two middle schools and two high schools reaching more than 70 kids each week with nutrition support. Last year our Summer Meals program served more the 29,000 meals over 12 weeks in June July and August.
We could not do this without the support of our partners, in an effort to raise funds for our childhood hunger programs we have partnered with Lot G and Cannery District Businesses.
