The Good Neighbor Fund is designed to help families that are having financial difficulties and struggling to pay for their student’s meals at school. With the funds, the school can insure the student(s) in need will receive a regular breakfast and lunch meal. The fund helps families make a fresh start. The unpaid meal policy states that no account may go below $-50.00. In the event it does, (per policy) the school is able to provide the student with a peanut butter/jelly sandwich and fruit for lunch; but no breakfast. With money from the Good Neighbor fund the school can provide that student with a breakfast and a full lunch instead.
The Augusta Food Pantry serves the greater Augusta area. Their mission is the help food insecure families have a little extra. At last count, they were supporting around 30 families. Monetary donations provide the most support for local families as every $1 donated returns about $10 worth of food from the Feed My People Food Bank.
We wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
