Every Meal Weekend Meal Program

EVERY MEAL WEEKEND MEAL PROGRAM

The Every Meal Weekend Meal Program is the core of our organization. It is our response to a need we hear frequently from Principals and school staff: “My students don’t have food on the weekends, can you help?” FAIR PLE 22-23 Every Meal Electronic Enrollment Form (All languages)

CHILD HUNGER IN MINNESOTA

Over 300,000 children in Minnesota don’t always have access to the nutrition they need to learn and grow. This is a horrible reality for so many kids in our community. Every Meal focuses on the weekend food gap, when children aren’t able to receive free and reduced meal programs at school.

MORE THAN A BACKPACK FOOD PROGRAM

Not a typical “backpack program” but a full-service non-profit organization specializing in equipping the community to implement weekend meal programs in their local school. Every Meal provides the tools and expertise required to make an effective and significant impact on child hunger.

We are a mobile delivery solution, providing food to children right where they are – at school. Our broad network provides 4-5 pounds of good food directly to children – at the end of each school week we put the food into their backpack for them to take home.
