End 68 Hours of Hunger is a private, not-for-profit, effort to confront the approximately 68 hours of hunger that some school children experience between the free lunch they receive in school on Friday afternoon and the free breakfast they receive in school on Monday morning.
This program, established in New Hampshire in 2011, puts nourishing food in the hands of elementary school children to carry them through the weekend. Volunteers purchase the food, pack the bags and deliver them to the offices of the selected elementary schools. From there, a school employee delivers the food to the classrooms of the individual participating students. The students take the food home on Friday afternoon. The cycle starts again, every week.
Last year, 63 Governor Wentworth School District children went hungry every weekend. Our purpose is to provide weekend food for school children Pre-K through Grade 6. Each bag of food costs $10 each week per child and provides two breakfasts, two lunches and three dinners for a child, with some left over to share! You can support a local child with food for one weekend for just $10, $40 for a whole month, or $440 for an entire school year.
The program is completely volunteer. 100% of the donated funds received purchases food for these children. All efforts are voluntary! No one gets paid! End 68 Hours of Hunger is a 501(c)(3) organization.
