Below is a message from the Beth Dillinger Foundation on how your funds will be used to feed children:
Dear 100 Women Who Care St Petersburg,
There is great need due to this pandemic, we will be using your funding to feed hungry children. We are currently feeding approximately 750 children every Friday so they will have food on the weekend. That costs $3,375 a week. I believe that number will continue to rise. After doing Nourish to Flourish for seven years now, you would not believe how children worry whether they will have food. These are elementary school kids. Once the school year ends the end of May, we will continue to provide food for children. Your funding will help to continue this program.
Nourish to Flourish, is a partnership with the 6th Circuit Public Defender's Office and the Beth Dillinger Foundation to feed chronically hungry children in our area. There are over 7,000 chronically hungry children in Pinellas County alone. A chronically hungry child is defined as a child who goes to bed hungry or who has insufficient food on the weekends. Our goal is to feed these hungry children.

The next meeting for this St Petersburg based chapter is set to be September 9th and November 17th. We encourage all who are interested to attend.
