This is the sixth extension of a one-year grant program to provide after-school snacks and suppers, summer lunches and weekend food-filled backpacks for low-income children at risk of hunger. In these poverty stricken homes, lack of nutritious food affects a child’s ability to develop and perform academically, physically, emotionally and socially. The NIFB serves over 4,370 children weekly, these lunches are typically the only meal the children receive each day.
