With school not in session and a record increase in unemployment, the need to feed hungry kids continues to grow. More and more families who are already on the edge, or barely making it, will struggle.
The Alaska Club is getting involved by packing thousands of meal boxes, providing delivery service to the pantry and matching up to $10,000 in donations. Learn how you can help?
Hunker Down and Step Up.
Children’s Lunchbox has three distribution sites for prepared meals for kids and their families (dinners and a snack) as well as pantry pack boxes. The pantry pack boxes provide a shelf stable meal for a family of four. We have both breakfast and lunch/dinner boxes.
Feed a family of four for $10.
With the possible reality that school will not resume until August, we anticipate needing 50,000 pantry packs to help stabilize and feed families. Each pack costs about $10. We can give the families we serve a little peace of mind until school resumes, and even thereafter. Right now, we are taking it one week at a time because of the lack of committed resources.
Step up twice as far!
With The Alaska Club’s match we will feed twice as many families. Imagine not knowing if next week you’ll be able to get a pantry pack to feed your family? It’s critical in these uncertain times that we can reassure folks our community is there for them - that Children’s Lunchbox is there for them. We will have food for your kids. We promise!
Will you help us make sure no child goes hungry?
Whether it is a record setting earthquake or a global pandemic, Alaskans are known for taking care of each other. Please join us as we step up to meet this challenge by donating today – every amount goes to feed hungry kids! Donate now at https://www.thealaskaclub.com/help.
