Invest in Hernando County Kids

PHP can provide a year's worth of  nutritious weekend food for only $150.  Your assistance will mean a child will arrive on Monday morning ready to learn rather than needing to race to the lunchroom due to hunger.

With 70% of the children in Hernando elementary and middle schools on free & reduced meals, we questioned what happens on weekends.  Guidance counselors, teachers, and principals say our weekend backpack program is making a difference.  Now we are feeding over 600 kids in 13 Hernando schools, 2 headstart facilities and the Boys & Girls Club.
