Prepare them to fill your shoes. We can help provide the foundation our children need to become future role models. Because we believe “a seed hidden in the heart of an apple is an orchard invisible.”

nutritious food. Each week, food boxes containing a variety of fresh vegetables and dairy will be available
at the locations listed below. The food boxes are free to everyone and do not require any form of

Snacks will be distributed on Friday May 29, 2020 from 11am to 1pm. The parent or guardian of the enrolled child will need to pick up the snacks. Your pick- up location is the center that your child attends.

Staff will be available to collect your packet as you pick up your snacks. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
