Mission Statement

We see a hungry kid. We buy food. We feed the kid. The Children's Hunger receives funding from corporate and individual donations of money, grants, and food donations appropriate for our efforts. We are governed by an independent, volunteer Board of Directors from all walks of life. Only by being attentive in the classroom can children absorb knowledge properly. A hungry child is less likely to do either one. A hungry child will, more than likely, grow up to be an adult dependent on society at worst or less successful in life as she or he could be at best. The Children's Hunger Project addresses this at the elementary school level. We have an uncompromising determination to achieve excellence as determined by the number of children we help to avoid hunger. We make unusual efforts to identify & recruit volunteers that are the very best for each job. Our goal is simply to feed every hungry and undernourished elementary school age child in Brevard County.


Over 50% of Brevard County students participate in the free/reduced-price lunch program in Brevard Public Schools. Some local elementary schools have more than 80% of their kids on the program with many at risk of hunger and malnutrition. The free and reduced-price lunch program is the key indicator of hunger risk, poverty,and malnutrition in a geographic area.

Here is how our program works: Each Friday, kids who we can afford to help get food to carry home in their backpack. Food items include, for example, ravioli, milk, juice, applesauce, raisins, cereal and other shelf-stable foods.

This kid-friendly food is lightweight and easy for the kids to handle - no cooking required. On Monday the kids return to school with a better and healthier foundation for learning.

At least on weekends, "our" kids have basic nutrition.

Schools provide a free breakfast plus a healthy lunch.

However, many children who are eligible for a free lunch at school are going hungry on weekends, nearly 70 hours at risk of weekend hunger.

The Children's Hunger Project addresses the issue with food packages. These food packages provide the foundation for learning and proper cognitive development of the brain.
