Weekend Nutrition Program

About the program....

This program is sponsored by the End 68 Hours of Hunger organization. End 68 is a private, not for profit, effort to confront the approximately 68 hours of hunger that some children experience between the free lunch they receive in school on Friday afternoon and the free breakfast they receive in school on Monday morning. Childhood hunger- or food insecurity- is a national problem. It occurs when children receive insufficient food on a regular basis and in many cases, missing meals entirely. After a while, this can lead to affect overall health, behavior and academics.

The Vacaville chapter is currently the only one in California and we are very pleased to be partnering with them. This is a wonderful opportunity for children and families, if they receive free or reduced school meals. Permission slips are available in the school office or online. If you have questions, please feel free to contact Darian Schwieger, Learning Support Coordinator. You can reach her at 453-6240 or darians@vacavilleusd.org
