1 in 4 local children depend on public school meals as their primary source of food.
What happens when school is out?
United Way of Southwest Louisiana partners with Summer Feeding Programs to provide Weekend Food Packs for these children. We collect individually wrapped, self-serve food and drink items.
HELP US FILL WEEKEND FOOD PACKS WITH THE COLLECTED ITEMS.
- No one under the age of 18 permitted even with an adult
5 out of 6 children who participate in an in-school lunch program do not receive meals during the summer. Many of these same children go without food on the weekends during school. Summer can be very difficult for at-risk kids without access to school-lunch programs so Summer Feeding Programs are provided. Weekend feeding is taken up by United Way of Southwest Louisiana by providing the programs with a bag of meals and snacks that administrators can give to each child to take home on Friday.
