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.
