The evidence is clear: when kids eat regular, healthy meals, their grades, test scores, and school behavior improve. But in Montgomery County, where one in three students qualifies for free and reduced-price meals, thousands of children go home without food for the weekend. KIND fills the gap: every six weeks, it mobilizes a workforce of 150+ volunteers to purchase and transport carloads of non-perishable food to 28 participating schools. School personnel, volunteers, and students come together to stuff bags for distribution — providing over 3,200 K–8 students with 285,000 weekend meals each year. Guidance counselors help identify students for the program, make sure they receive their “care packages” discreetly, and use the opportunity to informally check in and see if additional support is needed. KIND expands each year, but currently reaches just 15% of Montgomery County schools. Let’s help it grow.
