Weekend Bag Lunch Program

End Hunger This Summer

The end of the school year marks the beginning of a hungry season as millions of kids lose access to school meals during the summer. Open Heart Kitchen continues its Bag Lunch Program all summer long. Help support our program this summer.

Want to do more? Download the Hungry to Help Family Action Plan published by Feeding America. Learn how to answer when a child asks: “Why doesn’t everyone have enough food to eat?” The Action Plan also includes children’s activity sheets and Hands-on community action ideas. One in six children in the U.S. do not have enough to eat. Help your child develop empathy for others, and take action as a family.

Children’s Weekend Bag Lunch Program

Low-income children who receive free school lunches during the week may be left without a nutritious lunch on weekends, undermining their ability to focus and learn when the school week begins anew. To close this nutrition gap, Open Heart Kitchen distributes bags containing two healthy lunches to elementary and middle school students of low-income families in Pleasanton, Dublin and Livermore every Friday during the academic year.

We also distribute Weekend Box Lunch to low-income households at The Grove in Dublin Ranch.
