We’re leveraging your support to help hungry kids affected by the coronavirus nationwide. Take a look at what’s happening in Florida.

Together, we’re helping schools and community groups feed kids while schools are closed. Nationally, we’ve granted to 876 schools and community groups across all 50 states, Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia and Guam. In Florida alone, we’ve provided grants to 38 schools and organizations, totaling just over $1.7 million.

This is an ongoing multi-million-dollar response, and we will continue to do everything we can to make sure no child misses a meal.
