This is the breakdown for the weekly food cost for each child we support every school week. There are 36 weeks in the school year, multiplied by 800 kids, it comes out to a monetary value of $172,800 each year! This is why we hold the Fall Bash each year, it is our biggest fundraiser! Please consider sponsoring and/or attending this year, you won't regret it.

Putnam County Fair

Thank you to all that helped make the 2023 Feed the Need Putnam County Fair Booth a huge success! There were hundreds fair patron participants that learned about the great mission that Feed the Need is on! Check out some of the fun in the pictures!

Congressman Mike Walsh stopped by the Feed the Need of Putnam County Fair Booth and talked with board member Jackie Porter. He was impressed with all that FTN does to feed kids locally!

Painting the New Building

Keith Fleetwood of Helping Hands, along with his son, painted the front of the FTN building last month. A big shout out of appreciation for stepping up to give FTN a hand painting this part of the building, to offset our total cost of painting the whole building! It takes a team to get the job done, thank you Keith for being a part of that team! The building looks great with its new facelift! 

Rising Food Prices are Hurting Kids and Families

Although middle-income families are adapting to the rise in food costs as best they can, many surveyed families shared they’ve been skipping meals to make sure their kids are getting enough to eat and making drastic changes to how they feed their children. One in 5 middle-income families reported that they or their children have skipped a meal in the last year due to rising food prices. 

As inflation impacts the cost for other necessities like utilities, gas, rent, and clothes, more families are living one unexpected expense away from hunger. One in two middle-income families say an unexpected car repair or medical bill made it harder to afford enough food for their children.

This is why support of organizations like Feed the Need is vital to helping struggling families.
