What is this website?

As member of Leadership Huntsville and Madison Co. Connect Class 15 we saw childhood hunger as one of the largest needs in our community with the least amount of organization and effort currently being put into a solution.  We see this as the area that can be most affected by our efforts with the resources that we have available to us.  We feel very strongly about helping children as they are the most vulnerable citizen population.  Assistance now will affect their future by allowing them better focus on their education and a brighter outlook.

The purpose of this website is to be a “marketplace” for linking schools with needs to organizations to help.  The main focus is to provide information on the problem and the schools in need of assistance.
