Food For Thought (FFT) is staying busy throughout these holiday months, as they work to feed hundreds of local families in need.  They fed more than 640 families at Thanksgiving and expect nearly 900 families for their Christmas services.

The best way to stay in touch with FFT is through their texting service.  Families can text WALTON to 474747 to receive weekly updates about food distributions (including holiday services).  Distributions are available to students (brick and mortar, virtual, ILDA, and home school) and their families.  FFT can also communicate directly with families who may have transportation issues and arrange modified pick-ups or drop-offs if needed.

Families enrolled in Food For Thought services are encouraged to sign up for this texting service.  Teachers and counselors are also encouraged to sign up, so they have the most up-to-date information from FFT, as well.

Food For Thought is working hard to serve as many families as possible, especially during this difficult year.  They are seeing more than a 40% increase in need from last year.  Help us serve the community by sharing this texting information.
