help end weekend hunger
The 6th Day
Have you ever wondered where you next meal would come from?
We often hear about world hunger, but the sad reality is that hunger and food insecurity is being experienced every day by the children and families in our communities.
Currently our schools and local food banks are working diligently to provide meals to our children Monday thru Friday, but what happens when the weekend comes, and children no longer have the same access to free meals.
According to FeedingAmerica.org, “children facing hunger may struggle in school – and beyond. They are more likely to repeat a grade in elementary school, experience development impairments in both language and motor skills, and have more social and behavioral problems.”
We invite you to join our efforts
The Table Community Foundation would like to continue the great work that’s been started and help fill the hunger gaps by providing meals to our local children through The 6th Day program.
The 6th Day is a four (4) week pilot program created by The Table Community Foundation (TCF) in partnership with local restaurants, businesses, and our community to help minimize the impact of hunger throughout the weekend.
In launching this pilot program TCF aims to provide a minimum of 400 meals every Saturday – 6th day of the week, for the remaining four-weeks of the current school year. This means 400 children will receive a meal each week!
Through our various programs and services, TCF currently works with over 2,000 children in both the San Joaquin and Sacramento County. TCF will initiate the program by contacting these families directly and inviting them to enroll their children in the 6th Day program to receive meals.
The 6th Day program will allow us to make a four-week commitment to these families, guaranteeing a meal will be available to them every Saturday.
This is just the beginning of something great and with your help we can serve more families and provide more meals throughout the entire weekend – and beyond!
