Every gift you purchase helps feed a child in need.

We are partnered with Feeding America certified food banks across the US who help supply food-insecure children with weekend food bags. Each time you purchase a That’s Caring gift, we send funds to one of our partner food banks for the weekend bag program. Each food bank then creates the weekend bags and works directly with the schools who hand out the bags with care and discretion.

The bags are distributed discretely to avoid drawing attention to a child in a delicate home situation. Bag in hand, each child goes home with enough food to eat comfortably for the entire weekend until he or she is back in school and able to receive school-provided meals.

Each weekend bag includes products hand picked by child nutritionists that can stay fresh throughout the weekend. Items such as granola bars, cereal, canned fruits and vegetables, macaroni and cheese, juice boxes, and pudding are enjoyed by the kids and give them the sustenance they need.

Hunger Fact

13 million kids in the US live in food insecure households.

Why weekend bags?

Often times, for a child in a food-insecure household, the only meal he or she receives is one provided by his or her school. When that child goes home for the weekend, though, he or she no longer has that guaranteed daily meal. A weekend bag ensures that hungry children in our area have the fuel they need to:

Be active. Kids in food-insecure households struggle with energy levels. Without the proper nutrition, children don’t have what they need to be active . A simple weekend bag could mean the difference between a sick child and a healthy one.

Do homework. When anyone goes without sustenance for long enough, all tasks become a struggle. Children in food-insecure households have trouble focusing on homework assignments, papers and projects. Their imaginations suffer, and so does their ability to learn. The nutrition in these weekend bags lead to greater focus and attention on schoolwork.

Gain confidence. Many children feel insecure when they’re not given enough to eat. Confidence levels drop and development is affected. But, when a child has enough food to not only last through the day but also to keep up relationships with peers, he or she gains confidence and starts to interact more with others.
