    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.
     
    Details on Modified Food For Thought Services: 
    • We are running ONE direct feeding program until schools open - hosting a weekly pick up program in each county utilizing our FFT pantry locations 
     
    • We are grateful for the schools in Okaloosa and Walton County, that are also continuing to provide free grab-n-go meals to our students.  The food we provide to the children will continue to help bridge their meal gaps
