The mission of Cape Kid Meals is to provide food insecure children with food over the weekends during the school year. Food insecure children are those who are dependent on free breakfast and lunch programs in the public schools. Each week, volunteers pack the food bags for the children for our Cape Cod schools. The food bags are delivered to school by Friday morning. Social workers and/or teachers at each school put the food bags into the child’s backpack before weekend dismissal. The entire process is confidential and only the school’s social worker and teachers know which students are receiving the bags
LOCAL BUSINESS OWNERS
Cape Kid Meals relies heavily on the generous support of their partners to be able to make a difference in the future of our children on Cape Cod. Many food insecure children go home over the weekend to empty refrigerators and cupboards. The impact is profound for these children who often suffer from anxiety because of the fear of not knowing if they will eat over the weekend. By aligning your business with the well-recognized charities like Cape Kid Meals that St John's supports, you will further position your brand as a charitable member of the community. With your active support, together we can make a difference and bring hope to people in need on Cape Cod.
Generous donors like you are the key to our success and make it possible for St John's to provide local charities with critical assistance. Individual monetary donations are used to offset the costs of the golf tournament event so that all of the monies raised can be allocated to our outreach programs, primarily Cape Kid Meals. It takes $150 to feeds a child every weekend during the school year and with your donation we can make a significant impact. Your donation is tax deductible as St John's is a non-profit organization under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code. Your compassion enriches the lives of many people in more ways than you will ever know and we would be faithfully grateful for your support.
