While COVID-19 has created uncertainty as to what this school year will look like, one thing that WILL remain certain is that we still plan on providing children with weekend meals. Please support our program today!
The Crestwood-Sunset Hills Rotary Club established the Feed the Knowledge program in 2013 after recognizing the need to supply weekend meals for children in the Lindbergh and Mehlville school districts. Through relationships with the district school counselors, students needing assistance were identified. During the first year, Rotarians provided weekend meal bags to 25 students at 2 elementary schools. Since then the program has grown to serve nearly 200 students at over 15 schools during the 2019-2020 school year and continues to grow.
The goal of Feed the Knowledge is to provide nutritious, kid-friendly, easy to prepare weekend food bags which are discreetly distributed to the students each Friday prior to school dismissal. A critical component to maintaining a healthy childhood is nutrition. Proper nutrition is important to establishing and maintaining a good foundation for a child's physical and mental health, academic achievement and productivity.
While the pandemic has created uncertainty as to what this school year will look like, one thing that WILL remain certain is that we still plan on providing weekend meals throughout the entire school year! Your help is desperately needed as the number of children facing hunger in St. Louis continues to grow. We have a dedicated team of volunteers ready to make sure the food gets packed and distributed to those in need.
Your donation will assist us in purchasing food and supplies for these families. Together we will lessen the burden families face and ensure children stay healthy. Please consider donating today!
