FEEDING KIDS ALL SUMMER LONG WITH PROP
PROP’s Summer Food for Kids Program remains a vital part of our mission to keep everyone fed. This program provides families with children (0-18) with extra healthy kid-friendly foods (fresh fruits and veggies, dairy items like cheese and yogurt, and fan favorites like peanut butter, jelly and granola bars) during the summer months.
Why do we have our Summer Food for Kids program? During the summer when children do not receive free/reduced meals at school, PROP provides additional food to their families so kids can flourish at home. 686 children from 307 unique families were served by Summer Food for Kids in 2022.
How does the program work? During the months of June, July, and August, families with children who access the food shelf (current and new clients) will be offered an additional “child pack” consisting of a two-week supply of kid/teen-friendly groceries.
How can you help us? You can either donate non-perishable food items listed below that we need to keep fresh and stocked for the program or Donate Online to help us purchase the same.
