The food in this bag costs approximately $10. A lot of money? Sure. But without this program children are hungry for 68 hours a week. In a school year that is about $500 per child, not counting vacations.
When a class was recently asked by a teacher what they would do if they had $100. One child wrote:
If I had $100, I would give it to my mother to buy food for us.

What happens to the money?
100% of every single dollar contributed to End 68 Hours of Hunger goes directly to purchase food for these children, who have been identified by the guidance counselors and nurses at selected elementary schools as the most “at risk”. The remaining expenses – bank fees, web site hosting, filing fees (for documents required by the IRS and the State of New Hampshire), solicitation of contributions, reproduction of information for clients, and a myriad of other administrative expenses – are paid by donors who have allocated funds for that purpose. Not one penny of contributed funds goes to pay a single person for a single minute of work! Efforts on behalf of this program are 100% voluntary. Contact us to get started!
