Feeding Program
Feeding Program

BTG Feeding Program will invest in the lives of school age youths in the Southside. During the school year, many children receive free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch through the School Breakfast and National School Lunch Programs. What happens when school lets out? Hunger is one of the most severe roadblocks to the learning process. Lack of nutrition during the summer months may set up a cycle for poor performance once school begins again. Hunger also may make children more prone to illness and other health issues. A Summer Food Service Program is designed to fill that nutrition gap and make sure children can get the nutritious meals they need. After the expansion of our community center we plan to offer lunch during the summer with educational activities geared toward nutrition and wellness. The Community Food Pantry and mobile kitchen services will assist in the impact of the BTG Feeding program.
