Kid’s N.O.W. Food Program
Project WeHOPE is the sponsor of a Kid’s NOW Food Program, which stands for “Nutrition on Weekends,” providing weekly fresh food for families that are in need within the community. The program is in partnership with the Second Harvest Food Bank, who provide the food, and it occurs every Thursday at the Saint Samuel Church of God in Christ in East Palo Alto.
Prior to the Kid’s First Food Program, a program called “Technical Access Point,” or TAP, operated out of St Samuel COGIC, and it was a place where children of low income families in the community would come and learn basic computer skills while adults could do their resumes, perform job search and get job interviewing guidance. Both Second Harvest and Project WeHOPE saw the need of a nutritious balance for the kids.
The program provides food to 100 to 120 unduplicated families a month.
