Carryout for Kids
CARRYOUT FOR KIDS works with Broward County Title 1 Schools to help feed children who are chronically hungry or food insecure. We provide food for children to take home over the weekend to help ensure they have the sustenance required to nourish their growing bodies, minds and spirits. Chronic hunger and food insecurity can be identified in a number of ways. Teachers and school staff may observe any of the following: a child who rushes food lines, eats quickly, regularly asks other students and teachers for food, and saves and hoards food to take home.

HOW IT WORKS | WHAT WE NEED | VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
CARRYOUT FOR KIDS is housed at the Christ Church Ministry Center in Pompano Beach. Our ministry gathers food through food donations and food drives, as well as purchases it with monetary donations. A team of volunteers coordinates with the schools to identify the number of bags needed each week, and then packs and delivers the bags to the schools. The School Liaison or School Volunteer accepts the delivery, stores and distributes the sacks every Thursday. We also coordinate holiday deliveries with each school.
If you are looking for a service opportunity please let us know! We are a vital ministry with many needs. It takes many people to accomplish our goals. For a list of items needed, and volunteer opportunities, please see below.
