3/2/22 UPDATE: Kids Aginast Hunger Fremont is partnering with Kids Against Hunger Bay Area to pack and send 150,000 meals to immediate support of Ukraine refugees. Please help fund the meal supplies if you can. Click here to donate.
2021 has been a very challenging year. Due to the pandemic and the schools transitioning to distance learning, we did not have the ability to pack meals with the Fremont students. With the increased food insecurity in our communities, our tireless volunteers continued to pack meals to support our neighbors in need. Since the pandemic, we have packed over 200,000 meals and our meals have supported Abode Servics homeless shelters, Fremont Unified School Title1 students, SAVE domestic violence shelter, Salaam Food Pantry, Irvington Presbyterian Church Food Pantry, Convoy of Hope, Reaching Out Food bank, Haiti school feeding program and more.
We can't wait until our volunteer team can go back into schools again to educate students about compassion and enabling them to pack meals to support the less fortunate. Many hands make light work.
