Food4Thought Partner Schools

Support Our Food4Thought Partners

COVID-19 Update -- Please Read: During COVID-19, Britepaths' staff is maintaining communications with staff and volunteers at our Partner Schools and supporting them as needed. Cash Donations continue to be most helpful and allow us to provide gift cards to assist schools that are actively providing food support to families in need.

We are not encouraging the donation of Food4Thought weekend food packs until further notice, though you may check with individual partner schools near you to see if there is a need.

We are in the process of surveying staff at our partner schools to see how they would like assistance. Schools that have responded to date have an "Updated" notation under their listing. For those schools that do not have updated information, we recommend donating funds or emailing the listed contact to learn more.
