While schools are closed during this unfortunate Covid-19 situation, we at Food For Thought are continuing to provide food for the students in our backpack program on a weekly basis serving both Okaloosa and Walton County students.
Families will be able to pick up a bag of food (26 food items) each week at our pantry locations. Please Read below how #youcanhelp & details on our modified services.
