The Sheridan Story is leveraging community and school partnerships to fight child hunger by providing a weekend's supply of food to hungry children.

We believe that no child should be hungry. Over 200,000 children in the state of Minnesota live in food insecurity, including 100,000 children in the Twin Cities. While there are many programs providing lunch and breakfast to children at school, the weekend presents a gap during which children struggle with hunger. The Sheridan Story is leveraging community and school partnerships to fight child hunger by providing a weekend's supply of food to hungry children.

Method:
The Sheridan Story facilitates a partnership between community organizations, such as churches, and schools. The church or organization sponsors a school, which encompasses investing in the relationship with the school and also paying for, packing, and distributing food directly to the children. The Sheridan Story provides the logistical, sourcing, and organizational expertise necessary to execute the process of providing a weekend food supply. 

The goal of the partnerships is to feed hungry children while developing a lasting relationship between the community and the school.
