Make a Meal

CAN provides meals to our children & youth throughout our educational programs. In light of the schools closing as a protective measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19, our educational programs have also closed through April 6. 

Help us continue to provide healthy, filling meals to CAN's children & youth despite these closures, so families can remain healthy and well-fed as incomes and resources shut down across the state.

Volunteer as an individual, as a family, or as a group to purchase and assemble snacks and meals.
