Most Valuable Packers
What can you do to impact a child's life right here in Brevard?
Volunteer, share awareness of our mission with others, have a fundraiser and donate - even a small monthly donation adds up!

While many organizations have federal and state funding, we rely on the goodness of businesses, civic groups, faith-based organizations and individuals. All of our meals are prepped, packed and distributed by volunteers. As a TCHP volunteer commented, “There is nothing more honorable than caring for hungry children. You all are heroes.” THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for being heroes to so many local children in need.
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.

Please consider including The Children's Hunger Project in your beneficiary and estate plans. Leave a lasting legacy of fighting childhood hunger in our community!
Thank you for caring and sharing.
You give hungry children in Brevard hope!
