Guinness Book of World Records® "Most Hunger Relief Kits Assembled"
UNITE with Valley of the Sun United Way and our supporters as we attempt to beat the Guinness Book of World Records® most Hunger Backpacks assembled feat. You and 2,000 of our closest friends will assemble the kits in just a few short minutes to help end chronic hunger.
These meals will be used in our Hunger Backpack program to help Valley children who suffer from chronic hunger to get through the weekends, and return to school each Monday ready to learn.
What is a Hunger Backpack? It’s a scene that plays out in too many Maricopa County homes: A hungry child tries to focus on reading or school work on an empty stomach. Hunger has long-term consequences on children’s health, education and futures. For many children who live in the 82,000 Valley households that suffer chronic hunger, weekends are a dreaded time away from their only reliable source of food: school breakfast and lunch programs.
Valley of the Sun United Way’s WeekEnd Hunger Backpacks program provides meals to help those Valley children get through the weekends, and come to school Monday ready to learn. Your support helps us provide the meals that allow growing children to focus on their education, and succeed.
United Way partners with volunteers, schools and business supporters to provide children with food packaged to carry home and prepare easily.
