Each summer CORA’s SNACK! (Summer Nutritional Assistance for Chatham Kids) program distributes food to more than 1,100 kids who depend upon free or reduced-cost meals at school during the school year, but who have little or no replacement for this nutrition when school is not in session. SNACK!’s goal is to increase the accessibility of nutritious meals throughout the summer to children facing food insecurity in Chatham County. SNACK! provides each participating child with 21 nutritious meals each week from mid-June through mid-August. In summer 2020, we served 1,144 children more than 128,000 meals.
As we get ready for SNACK! this summer, we are hosting a SNACK! Food Drive during the month of May. We are asking people to help in three distinct ways.
