Food4Thought Partner Schools

Support Our Food4Thought Partners

COVID-19/21-22 School Year Update -- Please Read: During COVID-19, Britepaths' staff has maintained communications with staff and volunteers at our Partner Schools and supported them as needed.

We are in the process of collecting information from the schools about their donation needs for the 2021-22 school year. Schools with the note "GREAT NEED" next to them have started up their programs and are eager for donations to start feeding their kids!

Cash Donations continue to be most helpful and allow us to provide gift cards to assist schools so they may purchase food and have flexibility to assist students and their families in the way that works best for them.
