Here are just a few of our outreach programs:
Feeding Empty Little Tummies (f.E.L.T.)
F.E.L.T. foundress, Jane L. Evers realized Manatee County had a dark secret. We are home to thousands of homeless students who go hungry every weekend.
In 2010 Jane introduced Feeding Empty Little Tummies to 3 Manatee County public schools. We now service 32 schools and our numbers are increasing. Jane’s vision to provide nutritious meals to homeless students is still being fulfilled by our dedicated board, volunteers and community leaders.
