Food For Thought now has five ways to provide hunger relief - weekly backpacks during the school year for students receiving free or reduced lunches to close the gap of missed meals over the weekend, monthly snacks provided to teachers in schools receiving Food For Thought services to fight immediate signs of hunger, holiday services to help feed families in need during long breaks from school including summer, garden initiatives at select schools and at the Destin Pantry, and now the Full Circle Kitchen to help provide skills and additional sources of food to some of the most at-risk students in Okaloosa and Walton counties.

As Food For Thought continues to grow, support from the community is needed more now than ever. The local nonprofit expects to grow by over 50% and take on 6 new schools and reach over 2,500 students during the 2017-2018 school year. If you or someone you know would like to donate time, funds, or services to Food For Thought Outreach please email info@fftfl.org or visit fftfl.org

Food For Thought is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization based in Santa Rosa Beach, FL that provides backpacks filled with healthy, easy to prepare food for students who are dependent on free or reduced school meals. Our 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 in the 2017-2018 school year will serve 29 schools in Walton and Okaloosa Counties, providing backpacks for 2,500 students each week. For more information, such as donation locations, pantry items needed, and opportunities to volunteer, please email info@fftfl.org.
