The Fertile Ground Foundation Afterschool Meal Program is committed to providing students with the best possible nutrients under healthy and safe conditions. We aim to nurture the development of children by providing nutritious meals and to motivate healthy food choices. This Program exists to serve our children.
Children need healthy meals to learn, participate in sports and most importantly to grow into healthy adults. Fertile Ground Foundation provides Afterschool Meal Programs to any school, church, library, community center or location where children are enrolled in programs that provide educational or enrichment activities in an organized structured and supervised environment. Although there are no specific requirements for the types of educational and enrichment activities that a program can offer, examples include, but are not limited to, arts and crafts, homework assistance, life skills, remedial education, organized fitness activities, etc. These programs are also available during the summer months and fit well with sports camps, mentoring programs, enrichments activities, etc.
