Hey Destin… Here’s your “Food For Thought”…
Beachy Beach Destin Real Estate needs your help!
Located at 200 Calusa Boulevard, #100, next to Destin Plastic Surgery Center is an on going donation location for the area non-profit organization working to solve the problem of food insecurity (kids needing food assistance) in the school system, more specifically, right here,¬†in Walton and Okaloosa Counties.
Food for Thought saw the need, right here in Destin, FL and neighboring areas, that there where kids coming to school and not having the means to buy lunch or even bring a lunch. The organization was formed to help end hunger in the schools AND even at home. Food for Thought packs backpacks every week full of easy to eat items for children of low income families to take home on the weekends… This past year the program also added a food pantry in some of the schools, where older students can go in and pick up items they might need on their lunch break.
For children to become successful and well educated, their basic needs need to be met. It’s hard to focus on your school work when your tummy is rumbling. In their 1st year, they served a little over 100 kids, now they are serving 400 kids weekly, but sadly that is not even addressing all the needs in our area. So therefore, Beachy Beach Destin Real Estate and Food For Thought are asking you to invest in our children. They are currently serving 8 schools, 2 counties from elementary to High School and with your support are showing their biggest increases in service in 2014 since they began 4 years ago.
You can make a difference by dropping off food donations at an area drop off location such as Beachy Beach Destin…. or go shopping! Yes you can earn money for Food for Thought at no extra cost to you with help of Ching. Another thing that helps is a monetary donation. Walmart and other businesses give Food for Thought a nice discount for food, so they can get what they need at the present time with the money they receive.
