After School Snack Program
Several years ago, we were asked to provide after school snacks for children in the Parks and Recreation after school program in Delray Beach because of discipline problems.
Due to school crowding, children start eating lunch as early as 10:30 a.m. then go to an afternoon school program and are picked up by their care giver as late as 6 p.m. The children are hungry in the afternoon and neither the children nor the program have funds for food. As a result of this program, the discipline problems have decreased and the children are no longer hungry.
We are now providing after school snacks each school day to over 150 children from families with low incomes in West Palm Beach and Delray Beach.
Individual volunteers or groups are needed to make sandwiches.
