ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Nutrition On Weekends program is a collaborative, community effort to target childhood hunger. The program provides healthy, ready-to-eat nutritional foods for children during the weekend. The program was created in response to data collected from Marshfield students as part of the Youth Risk Behavior Survey. In 2012, 20% of students surveyed indicated he/she had gone to bed hungry at least once in the past thirty days because there was not enough food in the home. In 2017, 27.1% of Marshfield Middle School students and 20.4% Marshfield High School students indicated he or she had gone to bed hungry at least once in the past 30 days because there was not enough food in the home.
For $78, a child can be provided the supplemental food packs for the entire school year. To sponsor a child, please click on the button below:
