The Weekend Food Program was started in 2010 by the Gulf Breeze Presbyterian Church along with volunteers from civic organizations like Rotary to address a growing problem in our South Santa Rosa County Schools of hunger and poor nutrition over the weekend for children from families who receive free lunches at school.
Over the last 4 years, the program has grown to include every school between Gulf Breeze and Navarre and in the 2014-15 school year, over 400 students participated.
Our goal is to continue to grow the program so that every child in our schools who needs additional nutritional support on weekends has access to it. In order to make that happen, we need to raise additional funds and more volunteers.
The program was split for the 2015-16 school year to make better use of volunteers, and now Navarre schools are served by First Baptist Church of Navarre.
