NEW DAY feeds children in Arlington with the school district as our partner. We work directly with school counselors to find the students who are either hungry or who may be food insecure. The latter are kids who may not be hungry all the time but who do not have a consistent stream of nutritious food available to them. Counselors identify these kids and contact NEW DAY for the delivery of bags of food on Fridays. The bags are discreetly distributed to students by the counselors.
NEW DAY began as an outreach ministry of Grace Presbyterian Church and it subsequently became an independent tax-exempt nonprofit organization. NEW DAY still has close ties to the faith community. In fact, churches are an important aspect of our business plan. We have established three food packing production lines with the combined capacity of delivering 900 bags of food each week to Title I schools in Arlington. Production lines have been established at Grace Presbyterian, Westminster Presbyterian and Trinity United Methodist. We expect to establish other production lines in churches over the next few years so that we may feed all of the hungry kids in the school district.
