  • Sponsor a Child for the year

  • Feed Branford Kids is offering people the opportunity to sponsor a child. The cost to feed a child, with enough food for the weekend, runs approximately $250 (for an academic year).

    This includes providing each child with 2 breakfasts, 2 entrees, 2 milk, 2 juice and several snacks. During the holiday season, Feed Branford Kids also provides the children items like mittens, gloves, hats and scarves.

    If you would like to Sponsor a Child, please send your tax-deductible donation to:

  • OUR MISSION

    The mission of FEED BRANFORD KIDS is to see that ALL our children have enough to eat EVERY day whether it is a school day, a weekend or a holiday.

    OUR VISION

    Our purpose is to provide every child with life’s basic needs. Healthy children are more productive in school and integrate better in the community.

    DELIVERY SYSTEM

    Our weekend backpack program honors our children’s need for privacy by partnering with school administrators to ensure our commitment to their privacy. The program currently delivers 2 breakfast meals, 2 main meals, 2 cartons of milk, 2 cartons of juice and snacks for an entire weekend during the academic year.

    COST BENEFIT

    Our weekend backpack program relies 100% on private funding. Our board of directors is comprised of all volunteers. During our tenure the program has raised awareness that hunger lives in everyone’s backyard.

    OUR GOALS

    Our primary goal is to feed every child in Branford who needs our weekend program regardless of income or circumstance. Our secondary goal is to expand the program to meet the needs of children year round.

    FEED BRANFORD KIDS offers a weekend backpack program that has no income eligibility requirements and includes children beyond the free and reduced breakfast and lunch programs.

    An estimated 1 in 4 children meet the criteria.
    We also are meeting the needs of a diverse community – 40 languages other than English are spoken in the Branford school system.
