Belly-Full is a community coalition committed to sustaining and expanding programs to reduce childhood hunger in Springfield, Oregon.
Organized through the Springfield Rotary Club, Belly-Full partners with Food for Lane County, the Springfield School District, the Springfield Education Foundation, and a wide variety of organizations and citizens with similar concerns about childhood hunger.
Please explore the project links to learn more about our program, needs, and a variety of opportunities to help! For questions, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Belly-Full works to support
middle school and high school
“Snack Zone” programs and elementary
school “Snack Pack” programs that
distribute nutritious ready-to-eat food
directly to hungry students at school.
Belly-Full is working to bring food pantries into the schools for easier access by income-qualifying families. Families are able to select packaged, frozen, and fresh foods available through Food for Lane County. See the Food Resources page for information on all Springfield food pantries and hot meal sites.
EDUCATIONAL SCHOOL GARDENS
Partnering with the School Garden Project of Lane County, Belly-Full facilitates new garden projects in Springfield’s schools. Gardens teach life skills and engage kids around the topics of healthy eating.
INCREASING ACCESS AND AWARENESS
Many struggling families are unaware of the community food resources that are available to help. Belly-Full consolidates and promotes information on food assistance available in Springfield, to help families access needed food resources. Please see our Food Resources page for more information.
