How to Help

What can you do about it?

We are addressing the problem in two ways, helping the families that need the assistance NOW and helping prevent this from happening to more families.  Here’s what you can do:


  • Every dollar we collect will go toward erasing school meal debt from local student accounts in Hampton and Newport News before the debt goes further. Donate today to make a difference for these families! Click here to donate!

  • Join the community action team to address Childhood Hunger and School Meal Debt! We are organizing around the team’s ideas and have issued calls for action. Our next step is getting the policies changed.
