Team 100 Feeding Disadvantaged Long Beach Students on Weekends through the Volunteer Center's Food For Kids Program

Title One schools supply breakfast and lunch on school days… but who provides for them during the weekends?
No one! Until now.

The Volunteer Center’s Team 100 members deliver non-perishable food to Title One elementary school children in LBUSD. The food is to be consumed over the weekend by these disadvantaged families. Every Friday, we deliver food to hungry elementary school students. Each bag is filled with ten items of non-perishable food, for example: pasta, tuna, oatmeal, soup, applesauce, rice, beans, canned beef, peas and cereals. This provides food for the family for the weekend. Your membership will allow us to feed more students. The goal is to expand the program to help many more families.

Christopher J. Steinhauser, Superintendent of Schools in Long Beach, wrote in part:
“I write in strong support of Team 100, a group of 100 local men who want to make a difference in the lives of some of Long Beach’s neediest students. In particular, I encourage your generous support of T100’s Food for Kids program, now in its third year here in the Long Beach Unified School District….I can think of no other cause that is more deserving of your support than one that provides the basic necessity of nourishment to some of our most disadvantaged children and their families.”
