WAFB Programs: Claws for Cause Secret Meals

Many children in Alabama rely heavily on free and reduced breakfasts and lunches five days a week. However, the weekend creates a nutritional gap, leaving many children hungry when they return to school on Monday.  The BackPack/Secret Meals Program helps bridge the gap. Teachers discretely place the bags of food into the children’s backpacks, so they have nutritious meals throughout the weekend.

Currently WAFB packs 1,800 meals per week to support school-age children in Tuscaloosa, Greene, Pickens, Fayette, Lamar, Bibb, and Marion counties.  For $140, you can help provide one child a meal every weekend for the entire school year!
