Hungry children, families & individuals need our help
Did you know childhood hunger can cause lasting physical and mental challenges on into adulthood? There’s no excuse for allowing boys and girls in our community to go hungry. It’s up to all of us to care for these growing kids, and give them every opportunity to lead healthier, more productive lives.
Proper nutrition in childhood is critical. Lack of regular, nourishing meals can lead to chronic illness and increased hospitalizations, developmental problems, and even significant health issues in adulthood. Hunger can cause difficulty focusing in school and result in behavioral and social issues.
Childhood hunger is a serious problem
- More than 102,000 children regularly go hungry.
- Nearly 70% of children in Clark County schools — that’s more than 226,000 students — are enrolled in free or reduced-price meal programs.
Thanks to caring friends like you, boys and girls can get the delicious, nutritious meals they need to thrive. Your support ensures growing children can get access to meals at school, after-school feeding programs, and food assistance year around.

Help the less fortunate and become part of the solution:
We’ve all seen the lonely, the hungry and the destitute. Feeling a twinge of sadness, maybe even empathy, we feel compelled to help, but invariably the “how to” question creeps in next. Then it’s all over. Not knowing how to make a difference, we move on with our day, suppressing the disturbing images, waiting for the cycle to begin again.
Know that there are definitive ways to help your neighbors in need. We have designed a food distribution program that allows people throughout Nevada to receive food consistently. Our generous suppliers will donate food, or allow us to purchase on a regular basis, a variety of fresh produce, juice, milk, bread, can goods and meats. While our committed culinary chef volunteers prepare, cook and our volunteer staff of waiters/waitresses will serve the food. Our volunteer staff of sous chef volunteers will arrange the deserts and provide to go containers. We do our best to lead by example, showing others that giving is better than receiving, working as a team highlights our strength, being able to work together as a unit and as a family.
