F.E.L.T., feeding empty little tummies, is a local organization that provides backpacks filled with food to school children so they have meals over the weekend. FELT has gotten really creative about making sure the kids have foods they can eat by ensuring they don’t require a lot of prep-work, are lightweight and need no refrigeration. Things like oatmeal packets, tuna packets, crackers, powdered milk, mac and cheese cups, etc are on their list of ideal foods.
The Market at Lakewood Ranch is donating to this organization during the month of February. Please join us at the market this Wednesday and help support FELT by dropping off food items (visit our website for a list of approved items) or backpacks. We are also inviting your kids to participate at our booth by making a bookmark to be included in a child’s food pack.
