The Wimberley Fig Tree is a non-profit organization that grew out of a passion for children, helping others and feeding those in need. Our goal is to provide support to children in the Wimberley area who struggle with a consistent source of food. The story of hunger is all too real for many children right here in our community!
Children who rely on the school free or reduced meal program for their daily nutrition often times have empty plates throughout the weekend. School staff [nurses and teachers] identify children who would benefit from our program. We then provide those children with backpacks filled with easy-to-open foods to eat when they might otherwise have gone hungry.
Here’s some helpful information:
We are looking for sponsors to help feed our children in Wimberley. Our goal for 2015–2016 is to feed 85 children at Jacob’s Well Elementary and 55 children at Scudder Primary on a bi-monthly schedule September through May. The students are enrolled in the program based on financial need (enrollment in the free and reduced lunch program) and identification by nurses and teachers as children who would benefit from the program.
