Weekend Kids' Meals
Each week, Feed My People Food Bank provides bags of food for about 1,800 preschool, elementary, and middle school students. Each bag contains easy to prepare foods for two breakfasts and two lunches, including two pieces of fresh fruit.
The program is offered at 35 sites in Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls.
A fleet of dedicated volunteers pack the meals and deliver them to schools each week.
In addition to school sites, the Boys & Girls Club and Agnes' Table receive meals to distribute. Feed My People Food Bank also provides program support to partner agencies that offer similar weekend meal programs in other locations throughout our 14-county service area. During the summer months meals are distributed through the L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library, The Parks and Recreation Department, The Hmong Mutual Assistance Association, the Community Table, and the Wisconsin Youth Success Program.
The program is generously supported by contributions from the Walmart Foundation, the Otto Bremer Foundation, Feeding America (thanks to Rachael Ray’s Yum o! Organization), Rutledge Charities, the Women's Giving Circle, a fund of the Eau Claire Community Foundation, the Pain Clinic of Northwestern Wisconsin, area churches, and many generous individuals in our community.
