There are hungry kids in New Albany. Hard to believe, but in the New Albany Plain Local School District, nearly 100 children in need receive two free meals a day through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and the School Breakfast Program (SBP). The food they receive ensures they have at least two meals on school days — but what about the weekends?
Since 2022, our neighbors at Rose Run Presbyterian have been providing supplemental weekend meals for the hungriest children at New Albany Intermediate School. Their efforts, through donations and volunteer time, have ensured that children in dire need receive three meals and two snacks a day, from Friday night until Sunday night to tide them over until Monday morning’s school breakfast.
In partnership, Rose Run has approached TBS and asked that we join in on this important act of Tikkun Olam. We aim to provide the same tzedakah for the children in the New Albany Primary School.
Of the 1,500 students, grades 1-3, it is estimated that 25 are hungry and need our help.
The school is on board and eager for us to begin as soon as possible. Students in the most dire need have been identified and the list is growing. Our team will begin sending weekend food bags home with students in February 2024 — but we need help!
It costs $16 to feed a child from Friday night dinner through Sunday night dinner.
Please consider sponsoring a child:
On a monthly basis ($80), for half a month ($40), or just one weekend ($16).
Donations can be made on a one-time or monthly basis.
