Welcome to Milford Food 2 Kids

[COVID-19 Response Update]

THANK YOU for your commitment to making sure kids are fed. THANK YOU to our Milford Public School Food Services & Staff. 

Milford Food 2 Kids feeds local children who have little or no food resources during the weekend away from School. We are an initiative of the First United Church of Christ, Milford, in collaboration with the Connecticut Food Bank, The Milford Bank, and in partnership with our Schools and a growing number of Milford's caring community.  

Milford Food 2 Kids strives to alleviate food insecurity among children and youth in our community. Food security impacts the well-being of children: physical, emotional and social health as well as their ability to learn. Since we are passionate about making sure that children have the resources they need to thrive, we have reached out to meet this local need.

We serve over 150 students from 15 schools.  

School system social workers select the students that receive food each week on a degree of need basis. Although the students are anonymous to us we see them as "our kids"! With your help, we are able to purchase food, pack food bags and deliver them to the schools each week where they are discretely distributed to students.  

We should and can and will extend this resource to the kids in Milford for their sakes and for the good of a strong community.
