Cultivate Food Rescue with Success Academy South Bend.
Success Academy in South Bend began partnering with Cultivate’s backpack program in December of 2019. We couldn’t have imagined then that only six months later we would have delivered over 3,300 frozen meals to Success Academy students and their families. Thank you for all your support to provide food for children and families in need.

“All signs show child hunger is soaring. In a survey of mothers with young children by the Brookings Institution, nearly a fifth said their children were not getting enough to eat…”

Thank you for supporting Cultivate. Whether you donate, volunteer, or partner with us, you are helping fill a huge gap and meet a need for thousands of people in our community. #ThankfulThursday

Families who were already stretched too thin to provide enough food are now even more stressed, as food prices continue to increase. Your support of Cultivate is providing nutritious frozen meals for at-risk children and others in need. Just $35 provides 6 meals each weekend for a hungry child. Could you make a gift of $35 today to feed a child for the rest of the month?

Thanks to our dedicated partners at MoonTree Studios for all their hard work packing up backpacks each week for children in Plymouth Schools of Marshall County. Despite their smaller number due to closures and shelter-in-place orders, this powerhouse team packed thousands of meals into backpacks week after week to make sure these kids had enough to eat while their schools were closed.

MoonTree Studios will pick back up with Cultivate in August, but rest assured, plans are in the works to keep providing children and families with meals throughout the summer months!

Community Foundation of St. Joseph County, Indiana has played a key role in Cultivate’s ability to respond to increased food demand during the COVID-19 crisis. We’re grateful for their support of our organization and so many other local programs that are reaching those in need. They’re really putting a dent in food insecurity in St. Joseph County! We couldn’t do what we do without all our supporters.
