Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to be able to have enough food for the weekend to send home with each food insecure child in Putnam County for every weekend during the school year.

• Advocate
• Volunteer Recruitment
• Talk About Hunger with everyone
• We have local promotions like; food drives, annual garage sale to raise funds, yearly events that promote and generate funding to purchase food, one time and reoccurring donations.
• We have enlisted churches and civic groups to do a food drives, etc.

Our capabilities come from our Board Members, community members, local businesses, churches, civic groups and youth lead groups who have the drive and passion that fuels them to their time by either working fundraisers, promoting Feed the Need of Putnam County, Inc., doing presentations about FTNPC and generating knowledge of the our program and the need for it. Waste Not Want Not of Orange Park (Non Profit Food Rescue Organization) also provides our Non Profit with staple items and drinks for our children. We have also partnered with Hunger Fight out of Jacksonville, FL in packing meals for our food insecure children.

We have created contacts (community members, local businesses, churches, civic groups and youth lead groups , etc.) with in our community that help with our organization's progress, we have created annual events that provide food and money (for the purchase of food), we have formed a 501-c Non Profit Organization, we have created a Board of Members from various areas in our community, we now have a Facebook Page, a website, and a Logo for our organization.
