Stratford Food 4 Kids Program

More than 200 kids in our community struggle with consistent access to food on weekends.

Our Stratford Food 4 Kids Program* fills hundreds of backpacks with six easy-to-make meals and two snacks for children in grades K-12 for them to take home from school each Friday.

*This program is a proud partnership between Sterling House Community Center, Sodexo, and Stratford Public Schools
