WEEKENDERS FOR CHILDREN
Children enrolled in the National Free and Reduced Lunch Program may not have a secure source of food at home over the weekend. Bags of food consisting of three meals and breakfast items go home weekly with students who attend every elementary, Head Start, and MCBDD across Medina County. The goal is to have these children show up Monday morning hungry for learning, not for food.
If you would like to enroll your child in the Weekender for Children Program please contact your child’s school and request to receive a bag. This program is open to ANY family who is in need of support.
STAPLES FOR SENIORS
The senior population in Medina County continues to rise, with over 16% of the population living at an income constrained level, requiring assistance with everyday needs. Monthly deliveries of meat, fresh produce, shelf-stable food and dairy products are distributed to residents in subsidized housing facilities across Medina County.
If you would like to enroll in this program and live in one of the housing facilities listed please contact your facilities on-site coordinator.
Monthly food distributions are available for Medina County residents and held at the Medina County Fairgrounds for any family who needs support. A photo ID or some proof of residency is required. If you are unable to come in person an assigned person can pick up for you with a signed proxy form.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions people are required to stay in their cars and food will be placed in your trunk.
