Food For Thought:

 Who we are:

A variety of people from all walks of life have come together in concern about child hunger in the Valley: ministers, school administrators and teachers, agencies from Pennsylvania and New York, retired people and those involved with local food pantries.


To provide nutritional meals to students in need of food over weekends and school vacations throughout the school year.
