While free or reduced school lunches have proven to be incredibly beneficial to students from households experiencing financial hardship, these services are limited to the school calendar, which can leave children hungry and without basic necessities on weekends and during other school breaks. The ReNew Fill My Backpack program helps children and their families by providing kids with enough food to sustain their entire households for the weekend.
ReNew partners with organizations, sponsors, and community members to help increase the wellbeing of economically disadvantaged and otherwise marginalized segments of the community. Through Fill My Backpack, Renew distributes backpacks filled with healthful snacks to metro Atlanta elementary-school students who are receiving reduced or free lunches. Representatives of the program maintain contact with the children's families in order to make sure they have enough to eat during holidays as well as during spring and summer breaks.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help Renew give elementary-school children from economically disadvantaged households food to sustain them during the weekends. If G-Team members raise $400, then ReNew can provide 40 children with backpacks filled with nutritious foods and snacks such as dried fruit, whole-grain crackers, granola bars, and canned or vacuum-packed tuna, salmon, and chicken. Each additional $10 raised will be used to give another child a backpack filled with food.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
