The Community Action Council, Inc. at Chevy Chase is committed to its goal that No Child, if we can help, will go hungry. We know that many children do not get a healthy meal outside of school hours and days. No child should have to wonder when their next meal might be or go to bed hungry until the next day of school.
Beginning September 16, 2016, the center will offer weekend love boxes (similar to our previous love basket program) to feed income eligible children in need, who may not be able to afford a meal during the weekend. Boxes will be distributed 1 per household and may be picked up each Friday 3-4 PM. Boxes will contain food items, a quantity of which ill allow a family to provide a healthy meal for the entire weekend.
If you are interested in volunteering for the center to help distribute food boxes or would like to donate to this program, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call.
