About Help 4 Kids Florence
Help 4 Kids Florence is a 501c3 non-profit organization developed in 2013 as a community outreach program to feed hungry children in Florence County. During the school year pre-packaged, self-serving nutritious food is given to each child to take home for the weekend, these children attend public schools in Florence County who are at risk for hunger. Children are identified by their school teachers and administrators as at-risk and parents are asked to sign a permission form.
*$20 provides a meal for one child for four weekends. $200 provides a meal for one child for each weekend of the academic year.
This provides each child a bag of food each week during the school year that consists of single-serve items such as Ramen Noodles, Applesauce, Vienna Sausage, Pop Tarts, Oatmeal, Grits and Spaghetti & Meatballs.
During our 10th year of operation, Academic Year 2022-2023, Help 4 Kids Florence has been providing approximately 2,000 bags of food each weekend among 33 schools (including seven Head Start programs) in all five Florence County School Districts (Florence, Pamplico, Lake City, Timmonsville and Johnsonville).
