Dear Children's Hunger Project Supporter,

Can you help us help local children in need? We are providing our weekend food packages at Brevard Public Schools locations through July, and we must reach the goal of $50,000 for June, and an additional $60,000 for July . Please donate now so we can continue our mission to help vulnerable children.
Beginning Monday, July 6 through Friday, July 31 , Brevard Public Schools will distribute food on Mondays , Wednesdays , and Fridays only from 10:30am - 12:30pm at the following locations. The Children's Hunger Project will also continue to provide weekend food packages at these BPS sites on Fridays : Mims Elementary, Cape View Elementary, Coquina Elementary, Oak Park Elementary, Mila Elementary, Atlantis Elementary, Saturn Elementary , Golfview Elementary, Harbor City Elementary, Sherwood Elementary, Discovery Elementary, Palm Bay Elementary, and Turner Elementary. We are also partnering this summer with United Way of Brevard's "Feed and Read" program.

Thanks to many volunteers, businesses, faith organizations and supporters, in the past we provided meals to over 2,300 children in elementary schools. Since the pandemic we have provided up to 6,000 weekend food packages to children ages 18 and under at BPS distribution sites weekly.

Serving so many of Brevard's children is a tremendous achievement, and we are continuing to help children in need locally. But the strain on our our weekly food budget means we have to ask for your support at this time for June and July.

We need to ensure our kids are fed. As a formr BPS teacher commented, "Community helping community; we are all in this together! Families are struggling and unfortunately that means children suffer...this program is actively working to help every child have the nutrition to help them thrive to the best of their ability."

We began our pandemic plan determined to feed as many children as possible. That is still our goal. We will continue, with your help, providing meals to local children. Unlike organizations that have federal and state funding, we rely on the goodness of businesses, civic groups, faith-based organizations and individuals. We are truly blessed to live in such a giving and compassionate community.

All of our meals are prepped, packed and distributed by volunteers . TCHP follows the guidelines of physical distancing, requiring gloves and face masks, temperature checks and ongoing deep cleaning. We also partner with local churches who pack and deliver meals on behalf of TCHP. We obtain food from our vendors while searching local markets to ensure our food packages remain consistent, however with rising food costs and pandemic supplies/cleaning our cost of $4 per meal has now risen to nearly $5 per meal.
For those who can make a significant contribution, consider joining the Children’s Circle of Hope Society - this society is open to anyone contributing $1,000 or more annually. Contributions can be set up on a recurring basis of $84 per month.
Many thanks to local businesses, organizations and individuals that have stepped up to help us with our funding needs. Because of your help , we are making the lives of children in Brevard better during a challenging time.
