SOME Partners with Albertsons Companies Foundation to Feed Children in Family Housing

SOME is thrilled to announce our renewed partnership with the Albertsons Companies Foundation. Last year, through a generous $10,000 Nourishing Neighbors grant, this partnership enabled our SOME Breakfast for Kids program to successfully provide 2,192 nutritious breakfasts to 220 formerly homeless children living in SOME’s affordable housing units in Washington, DC. This initiative played a crucial role in creating greater food security for these children and supported them on paths toward academic success.

Building on the success of last year, we are excited to share that the Albertsons Companies Foundation has renewed their support with a $12,500 grant for our new SOME Meals for Kids program. This summer initiative, running from June 1, 2024, to September 1, 2024, aims to fill the food insecurity gaps experienced during the summer months. With this support, SOME will provide over 2,700 healthy breakfasts and lunches to up to 363 low-income children in Washington, DC.

Direct Impact Through Nutritious Meals

The renewed grant will allow SOME to directly provide meals to children who might otherwise face hunger during the summer break. By ensuring these children have access to nutritious food, we are not only addressing immediate hunger but also supporting their overall well-being and development. Adequate nutrition is vital for children’s physical health, cognitive development, and academic performance, and this program will play a key role in helping them thrive.

Strengthening Our Community

This partnership with the Albertsons Companies Foundation underscores the importance of community collaboration in addressing food insecurity. By working together, we can create a stronger, healthier community where all children have the opportunity to succeed. The support from the Albertsons Companies Foundation is a testament to their commitment to making a positive impact and their belief in the power of community-driven solutions.

Looking Ahead

As we embark on this summer project, we are filled with hope and determination to make a meaningful difference in the lives of the children we serve. The SOME Meals for Kids program is more than just a meal provision initiative; it is a lifeline for families struggling with food insecurity and a stepping stone towards a brighter future for their children.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the Albertsons Companies Foundation for their continued support and partnership. Together, we are making a significant impact, one meal at a time. Stay tuned for more updates on the progress and success of the SOME Meals for Kids program.

Thank you to everyone who supports SOME and our mission to end hunger and homelessness in Washington, DC. Your contributions and involvement are invaluable in helping us achieve our goals and create lasting change in our community.
