Jude has continued the tradition of donating food on his birthday for many years now. In 2018, we presented Jude with a certificate of service In recognititon of the support Jude has given to our community. Jude’s outstanding inititative has inspired other kids to donate food on their birthdays, causing a ripple effect in our community. Jude has become not only responsible for the food he has donated, but partially responsible for the food he has inspired others to donate. In 2021, Jude donated food to the Community Services Clearinghouse for his tenth consecutive year.
The Meals for Kids backpack program is instramental in alleviating childhood hunger in our community, providing 2,400 meals per week to hungry children. We greatly appreciate Jude and the other kids who are willing spend their time and effort to help in the fight against hunger.
