Feeding hungry kids in safe community environments!
Welcome to The Childrens Lunchbox
Feeding Hungry Children in Safe Community Environments since 1998!
Childhood hunger is a very real problem in Anchorage.
In 2012 the Anchorage School District collected income data which showed that over 18,000 of our students right here in Anchorage are living in poverty. They are AT-RISK of not having access to enough healthy food. There are thousands more in our outreaching communities.
Our system of getting food directly into the hands of young elementary students is a unique and successful one. In 2012 The Children’s Lunchbox prepared and delivered more than 200,000 meals and we are on track to increase that number by 20% this year because while it has been a year of many surprises and changes in the social and financial perspectives. One thing has remained consistent; there are hungry kids in Anchorage!
Lets make a difference in our community and in the lives of children!
