At St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, our vision is that no child goes to bed hungry so they can live healthy and productive lives. Join us for the 13th Annual Tee Up for Kids Golf Tournament and help St. Mary’s raise awareness and funds to accomplish this goal.
This year the golf tournament will be held again at The Wigwam Golf Resort in Litchfield Park, with the shotgun start bumped forward to 8 a.m. Sign up a foursome ($1000) or as an individual ($275). Or get your organization more involved in the fight against childhood hunger by becoming a sponsor of the tournament.
We know that a child missing meals on a consistent basis is sick more often, has difficulty concentrating and performs significantly lower in school, has higher instances of aggressive and anxious behavior problems, and is more susceptible to lifelong health problems. In response to these needs, and with your support, St. Mary’s Food Bank operates programs that help fight child hunger:
- We collaborate with schools, community center and other neighborhood groups to provide free, healthy meals in afterschool and summer programs.
- We distribute more than 30,000 Emergency Food Boxes each month at no cost to families and individuals in need.
- We operate a Mobile Pantry program at more than 40 locations in both rural and urban areas bringing truckloads of fruits, vegetables, and bread to entire neighborhoods in need.
Since its inception in 2001, our annual Golf Open has raised more than $650,000 to help fight child hunger in our State. That support has helped us provide more than 4.5 Million meals to children struggling with hunger. With your help, we can accomplish even more.
