MissionThe mission of Lakeshore Food 4 Kids is to diminish the meal gap for food insecure students over the weekend so they are prepared to learn.
What We DoLakeshore Food 4 Kids (LF4K) is a nonprofit weekend food "backpack" program for K-12 students experiencing food insecurity in the Ludington Area School District in Ludington, Michigan.
LF4K delivers roughly 150 food bags to preschool, elementary, middle, and high school students each week during the school year. The food is distributed to participating children at school as they leave for the weekend or before a long break.
Learners who come to school with a full belly are more focused and better able to learn, safeguarding a brighter future. By removing a barrier to education, Lakeshore Food 4 Kids offers youth a greater chance for success.
