2nd Annual Race to the Weekend Wheels
Windsor, ConnecticutWindsor, Connecticut
Sat 27th April 2024
A cause near and dear to the hearts of many in the community of Windsor, CT - Weekend Wheels is a supplemental food program that helps provide food to children (elementary through high-school aged) within our community.
A high number of students receive school meals during the week but are lacking food on weekends. Weekend Wheels was created by the Windsor Hunger Action Team to help fill that void. Their goal is to keep their participants nutritiously satisfied throughout the weekend and ready to focus and learn in school. Participants receive bags containing breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner, shelf milk, juice, fresh bakery and fresh fruit.
Since it began in 2013, the Weekend Wheels Program has distributed over 22,000 backpacks filled with supplemental food to Windsor children in need. That is approx. 232,000 pounds of food! When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in March of 2020, the distribution process was quickly changed from school delivery to the student to a direct home delivery without missing one week of distributions.
Weekend Wheels is a program of the Windsor Food Fuel Bank.
