Food for Kids

About the Program

School isn’t just a place for learning… For some of our kids, it’s also the most reliable source of food in their lives. The Oconee Food for Kids program was created to help bridge and even close the hunger gap for students in Oconee County Schools (OCS), by providing a bag of nutritious kid-friendly food to children who might not otherwise have enough to eat over the weekend.

Please help us provide enough food for weekend meals and snacks for children identified as being “food insecure” by Oconee County School officials.
