The Children’s Hunger Project is partnering with Brevard Public Schools to bridge the weekend food gap and we will continue to feed children by providing weekend food at designated schools. During the pandemic we are working hard to provide over 5,800 meals to children ages 18 and under at Brevard Public Schools distribution sites weekly, as well as Students in Transition, Cocoa and Melbourne PAL, Brevard Cares, Boys and Girls Clubs, and Club Esteem. That’s over $55,000 more per month that needs to be raised during the pandemic.

The South Brevard Sharing Center Inc. (SBSC) was founded in 1971 as a non-profit, community based agency whose mission is to support, strengthen and empower families to achieve self-sufficiency in south Brevard County, FL.

This assistance includes food, clothing, household items and financial vouchers for prescriptions, utilities, rent and other miscellaneous items through case-managed services. Seasonally, the Sharing Center also provides food and gifts over the holiday season, as well as backpacks with supplies for children to start the new school year.
