TNKids Nutrition will be again be providing free breakasts and lunches to children in Robertson County in 2024!
(And we hope to be in more counties)
Many chldren receive the majority of their nutrition from free meals provided by the school system. That nutrition is not available during summer break, and those children suffer from hunger. Just as in the past several years, TNKids will be traversing the majority of Robertson county providing food boxes containing seven breakfasts and seven lunches to children every week. Watch this site and our Facebook page for more details about times and locations.
TNKids has been encouraged to begin conversations with the leaders in other counties to provide meals for their chidren. Those conversations have started, and we might be assisting counties in West, Middle, and East Tennessee.
Patty Dunn Memorial Backpack Attack Program - The Patty Dunn Memorial Backpack Attack Program meets at 7:30 every Wednesday that school is in session to make up the food packs for that week. We meet at the TNKids warehouse at 1006 Pepper Street, Springfield. The warehouse is two blocks behind the Depot Restaurant.
In case of inclement weather, we follow the lead of the Robertson County School System. If school is out on Wednesday, we will pack Thursday. If school is out Wednesday and Thursday, we will pack Friday. If school is out Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, we will pack on the following Wednesday. If schools open late, we still meet at the regular time.
