Feed A Kid
June 1 - July 31
Make a difference for those children in need on the North Fork!
During the school vacations when children are not able to receive free breakfast and lunch at school, CAST helps fill the need by providing bags of breakfast and lunch to eligible families.
As summer nears, we face the prospect of children in Southold going hungry. That is why CAST developed the “Feed-A-Kid” program. As you may know, school-aged children from struggling families in our community receive free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch at school throughout the school year. During eight weeks of summer, CAST provides breakfast and lunch groceries to children on school vacation. That means that 80% of CAST’s nutrition support for children enrolled in the schools’ free meal program is delivered over the summer.
Each year, the number of families we help goes up. Two years ago, we provided 40 families with breakfast and lunch. Last year, it was 50 families. This year we anticipate another increase in the number of families we feed. The Feed-A-Kid program depends on support from our caring neighbors in Southold. Please be a part of this wonderful program by donating what you can. These kids will forever be grateful to you.
