Event Description:
Join us for our March First Friday Breakfast at Tri-State Christian Camp sponsored by St. Joe! 
 
Hear from Tiffanie Nelson Founder & CEO of Food For Thought Outreach. 

Our mission is to remove the negative impacts of hunger, and empower a child to get the most out of their education and development by providing them weekly access to healthy, easy to prepare meals
 
Food For Thought is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization in Florida, serving Walton and Okaloosa Counties. Food For Thought provides backpacks filled with healthy, easy to prepare food for students who are dependent on free or reduced school meals. Our goal is to support a child’s development and educational experience by bridging the gap between school meals during weekends and holiday breaks.  Food For Thought has been working to fight child hunger since 2010, and currently serves 32 schools in Walton and Okaloosa Counties, providing backpacks for 3,300 students each week
 
Warehouse Information 
In response for the demand of our services, Food For Thought Outreach starting searching for options to expand our warehouse capacity two years ago. Last year we were presented with an in kind donation of a DeFuniak warehouse on HWY 90. The warehouse was in need of serious repairs and improvements to support our needs and that work has been going on for the past year. Food For Thought has been able to secure several grants to support this massive project and we hope to move into this space by the end of the March. This location will become our central delivery location for our food and significantly increase our capacity to house food. Currently we source, purchase and distribute over 40,000 food items per week. In addition this location will support our current services in DeFuniak, Freeport, Mossy Head and Baker and in the future support additional schools such as Paxton and communities such as Crestview. As a nonprofit organization we depend on volunteers and donors to fuel the services we provide year around to over 3,000 food insecure children every week in your community.
