Our Local Kids are Going Hungry – Cadence is Working to Help

Many kids who rely on school-sponsored meals are going hungry on the weekends. Cadence at Gateway, through its developer Harvard Investments, is showing commitment to help solve this problem this season by supporting Arizona Brainfood, a non-profit organization that provides weekend meals to feed East Valley elementary school children in need. This effort is designed to help children be better able to return to school mentally and physically able to concentrate.
Every Thursday morning, Arizona Brainfood volunteers pack bags of food for children who would otherwise go without over the weekends. Food bags are then taken to schools where they are placed discreetly in the children’s backpacks for them to take home.

Founded by Ruth Collins in 2009, Arizona Brainfood now feeds 3,600 students per weekend at 125 participating schools, with 674,135 bags provided. A donation of $20 feeds a student for one month. Donations from Cadence at Gateway and other generous individuals and corporations – plus the work of dedicated volunteers — make this possible.

To learn more about the work of Arizona Brainfood, to volunteer, or to donate, visit https://www.azbrainfood.org/, email info@azbrainfood.org or call 480-415-0066. Each donation tells a local child they are loved, they community cares about them and there are many people willing to help them reach their educational and personal goals.
