What is Food For Children?
Winner of the Congressional Victory Against Hunger Award, Food For Children provides fresh produce and essential food staples to children and families at dozens of sites throughout Santa Cruz County. Fresh and healthy foods can be rare – and un-affordable – in many low-income communities, but Food For Children brings the produce aisle to the neighborhood.  Staff offer nutrition tips and menu ideas to help parents prepare the food in healthy ways, so back at home, the whole family eats well, and the kids are taking in not only the vitamins and nutrients they need to learn in school, but also the healthy habits they need for a successful future.  For the past 16 years, the Annual Santa Cruz Chefs’ Dinner has serves as the signature fundraiser for Food For Children.
