Children's Hunger-Gap Lunch Build
Individual or Groups

During the school year, students rely on the daily lunch provided by their school. Often, during the summer months, those same kids go without. United Way has partnered with six school districts in the Treasure Valley to fill that summer hunger gap by assembling 20,000 prepackaged lunches to meet that need.  This opportunity will occur at the old Macy's building in the Nampa Gateway Center off of Garrity Blvd.

Volunteer to help fill the hunger gap by building lunches for local children! Choose which date(s) and time(s) you would like to volunteer for:

Help United Way expand Little Libraries and Red Bookshelf locations in the Treasure Valley so more kids have access to free books! This is a terrific group project too! Choose from the opportunities below:

In August, we see a huge need from our area schools for supplies. Many teachers purchase items for their students out of their own pockets. It’s our hope to help every student find success in the classroom without asking teachers to dip into their own bank accounts.

Host a school supplies drive to give these kids the start they need for a successful school year!
