What Is Derby Day?

The Children’s Hunger Project provides over 2,900 children in Brevard with weekend meals who may be at risk of little or no available food. All meals are prepped/packed/distributed by our volunteers. On empty stomachs, kids don’t have the energy to focus, engage, learn and grow. Yet, this is the reality for many children who worry about when they’ll have their next meal. Every Friday, The Children’s Hunger Project helps elementary school children by providing nutritional food packages to carry kid-friendly food home in their backpack.…meaning it is lightweight and easy for the kids to handle and no cooking is required. On Monday, the kids return to school but with a better and healthier foundation for learning. Thanks to many volunteers and supporters, we have served Brevard County children on school weekends without missing a single week, since 2010. To continue serving the increased need for weekend food fuels our passion and compassion to work on behalf of hungry children in Brevard. Watch this short video to learn more.
