Ribbon Cutting Celebrates Food For Thought Outreach’s New Destin Pantry
Destin, Fla., May 23 – On May 18, Food for Though Outreach celebrated its new Destin pantry with a ribbon cutting.
Food for Thought Outreach is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity organization fighting childhood hunger in Okaloosa and Walton counties. It provides backpacks filled with healthy, easy-to-prepare food for students who are dependent on free or reduced school meals. Its goal is to support a child’s development and educational experience by bridging the gap between school meals during weekends and holiday breaks.
Food For Thought has been working to fight child hunger since 2010, and currently serves 15 schools in Walton and Okaloosa counties, providing backpacks for 1,200 students each week.
The Destin Chamber’s Destin Forward community education and leadership program donated volunteer hours, as well as $5,740, towards the new pantry, which is located at 908 Airport Rd.
