Kids for Kids Annual Food Drive

2nd Annual Kids for Kids Food Drive

Program Description:

The 2nd Annual Kids for Kids Food Drive will take place from October 12, 2020-November 30, 2020. participants will not only be helping provide much needed food resources to those at Lotus House but will also give participants the opportunity to become advocates on behalf of those experiencing homelessness and food insecurity.  Given the circumstances of this year, we have changed the format of the drive and wanted to provide options on how you and your team can still participate:

    • In-person drive: I've attached a list of the items that we are most in need of that you and your organization can collect in person. At the end of your drive, please let us know how you would like to coordinate delivery/pick-up
    • Virtual Drive: we have created our non-perishable food wish list on Amazon, Target, and Walmart and I have provided them below.

If you and/or organization are interested in participating, please email love@lotushouse.org for more information.

About Homelessness and Hunger:

Children experiencing homelessness are twice as likely to be hungry as their peers and suffer the long ranging impacts of malnutrition with adverse consequences to their cognitive development, physical growth, educational success and social and emotional well-being. 

Our facilities at Lotus Village are pivotal in solving these issues by providing nutritious meals and snacks and educational programming to teach children the importance of healthy eating. We provide over 350,000 nutritious meals annually designed to nourish and uplift bodies, minds, and spirits.
