Students & Familes
"My son loves getting the food, he's super excited every time. We have 5 kids and I wish Hand2Hand could be offered in my other children's schools. It means less groceries for me to buy when costs have gone up so much. It’s been helping us with our budget."
"Hand2Hand has helped by giving us food in between my parent's paychecks."

"Thank you!! The extra food is helpful. My daughter is excited to open her backpack every week."
"I see the look on the kids' faces as they pick up the backpacks filled with wekend food. There is a true appreciation in those faces. These kids feel loved and thought of."
"I think Hand2Hand is one of the most important partnerships we can make. Students don't get to the level of learning if their basic needs are not met!"
"Students look forward to getting the food and ask for it on Fridays. I never have to remind them to get it."
"Whenever we have felt that it’s going to be difficult to get all the food we need something happens and we have plenty. It has happened over and over again through the years we’ve been with Hand2Hand."

The Hand2Hand deliverers are kind and always have smiling faces. I personally may not benefit from the food, but I certainly benefit from their friendly demeanor on a Friday morning!
"At the time, I wasn’t going to church. I felt disconnected. Someone asked me to volunteer for the Hand2Hand program at church. I felt a lack of community, so I said yes. I began serving with others - packing bags of food and praying for each kid who would get them. As I was serving and loving these kids each week, I felt God’s presence in my life again.
