Through Food Brings Hope's partnership with Halifax Urban Ministries, we provide food for a weekend to the families of over 200 Volusia County school children.
One of the missions of Halifax Urban Ministries is homeless prevention. HUM believes removing the stress of food insecurity from the equation helps keep families from becoming homeless. That is, when their grocery bills are reduced, families are left with more funds available for basic housing needs. With Food Brings Hope's mission to eliminate hunger among our community's children, the partnership with HUM on weekend grocery bags was a natural extension of our respective missions.
Bags containing enough food to feed a family of four for a weekend are distributed through the schools to the parents of the students FBH serves. With over 200 students enrolled, our program provides sustenance for over 800 people per week. Partnership efficiencies and community support keep expenses down, so the cost of a bag filled with 40 pounds of non-perishable grocery items plus 6 pounds of meat costs only $8.50.
