2019 Food4OurKids Summer Application

2019 Food4OurKids Application Overview

Dear Prospective Agency,


Thank you for your interest in becoming a Food4OurKids partner agency with the Palm Beach County Food Bank (PBCFB) for summer 2019! Food4OurKids is a year-round weekend feeding program for children.  During the summer months we partner with schools, summer camps, and other non-profit organizations serving children.  Agencies participating in the program receive a weekend's worth of nutritious, shelf-stable food for each child in their summer program. The bag of food is enough to last the weekend, including mostly individually sized items with family-sized items for two meals.

Agencies participating in Food4OurKids will either need to pick up food from PBCFB's warehouse or may be able to have food delivered directly to their site. Agencies located in Belle Glade, South Bay, or Pahokee will have food delivered to their site. A limited number of agencies on the east side of the county may have their product delivered directly to their site, based on need. All agencies will be responsible for storing food, packing bags, and making sure bags are distributed in time for the weekend. 

The Food4OurKids application must be completed by agencies that wish to participate in the program. The application cannot be submitted unless all paperwork is provided. If your agency does not currently participate in another PBCFB program, you will be asked to submit one or both of the following:
  • 501(c)(3) (or non-profit equivalent) letter
  • DR-14 tax exempt form
Agencies will also need to attend an orientation in order to participate in the program. Orientation will be held on two dates to accommodate different schedules. Agencies may attend either orientation on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 at 1:00 p.m., or Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. Both orientations will be held at PBCFB's office. The 2019 Food4OurKids Summer program will run for eight weeks, from the week of June 3rd through the week of July 22nd.

Please note, if you are applying for two or more different summer camps or programs, you must fill out this application for each site. 

Also, please note that we will not be distributing backpacks this year. 

Applications are due April 26, 2019 at 5:00 p.m.

Again, thank you for your interest in partnering together to serve our community. We look forward to working with you. If you have any questions throughout the application process, please feel free to contact us by phone at (561) 670-2518, extension 312, or by email at agency@pbcfoodbank.org.

Thank you,
