Food4Kids Summer Fundraiser

June 1 - June 30

As the school year winds down for Long Beach Unified Schools, everyone’s focus is on
summer break. But while classrooms may be clearing out, our commitment to
supporting the nutritional needs of students remains steadfast, and we have already
begun budgeting for our Food4Kids program for the 2024-2025 school year.

Introducing the Food4Kids Program

Since its inception in 2015, Food Finders Food4Kids program has been a beacon of
hope for students who rely on subsidized school meals. For many, these meals are a
vital source of nutrition during the week. But when the weekend arrives, hunger once
again becomes a harsh reality.

How Food4Kids Works: Fueling Families for the Weekend

Each week, volunteers for our Food4Kids program pack and distribute boxes containing
selected items, designed to create six wholesome meals for a family of four. These
boxes are meticulously curated for nutritional balance, with 75% of items strategically
purchased by Food Finders.

Expanding Reach, Increasing Impact

From its humble beginnings in 5 elementary schools, the program has grown
exponentially, now spanning 47 schools within the Long Beach Unified School District.
This includes 15 elementary, 21 middle, and 11 high schools.
However, we need your support to continue this vital work. We distribute 1,717 boxes of
food per month. This equates roughly to 28,605 meals per month!

Join Us in Making a Difference

This June, we have set a goal to raise $8,000 for our Food4Kids program to help us
prepare for the return of school in August. Every donation, no matter the size, helps us
inch closer to our goal. Together, we can ensure no child goes hungry over the
weekend.
