We are Student LunchBox, an awesome and one-of-a-kind charitable organization ever formed in California specifically designed to fight food insecurity among low-income college students.
Yes, it is correct; college students are also suffering from hunger; they are the forgotten group when we speak of the hunger crisis in the United States.
We formed Student LunchBox to initiate a change and spread awareness of this unspoken issue rooted in our communities.
It is hard. We understand it, especially when we get No's from the 99.9 % of the potential outreach partners, businesses, or individuals to help us rescue food or help with operating expenses. However, we are still here, standing tall, facing challenges, and we will never stop.
This is why we are starting a Gofundme, hoping you could hear us, and become the ambassador of our work in your communities.
Student LunchBox has moved forward every step of the way without external funding; yet, we developed incredible partnerships with large nonprofit food distributors that share our mission at heart and will help us rescue over 1000 pounds of food weekly to change the lives of thousands of students and enhance their academic experiences.
Our outreach initiative also allowed us to build working relationships with community college food pantries to host our food drives and feed most of their food-insecure students. And all of this is done with the help of our incredible volunteers who believe in Student LunchBox's mission.
This is the part where we ask for your help, if you can, of course, and if not, please share; this is all we need from our community members.
Currently, our team performs donation pick-up and delivery by driving a small SUV; however, the opportunity we have ahead of us is big, as we will be able to deliver pallets of food weekly to many colleges. To do this, we need a cargo van and several supplies that we simply cannot afford.
As the program continues its growth, we will need the support of our community members to help us continue meeting our goals and fulfill our mission successfully.
I am reaching out to you in hopes that we can engage your assistance in meeting Student LunchBox’s goals and pave the road for a shared effort in turning student hunger into a tale of the past.
Please join our mission and help us fight campus hunger in our communities!
We are grateful for every dollar donated.
