WHO WE ARE
The Boerne Community Coalition (BCC) is a 100% all-volunteer 501c3 organization that works in partnership with other local organizations (churches, schools, non-profits, local government, civic groups and businesses) who all share the same vision – that children in our community should not be at risk of being hungry.
WHY WE ARE
About 1 in 5 children (or 19.37%) in our community are on the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. These children face food insecurity expecially during non-school periods. When children are provided the proper nutrition, it positively impacts their physical development, mental health, and academic levels – setting a course for greater achievements in their future endeavors.
WHAT WE DO
What began as an effort to provide summer lunches to children eligible for the National School Lunch & School Breakfast Programs has evolved into three programs that provide year-long support to these children and their families, with a focus on meals, access to enrichment, and help with making homes safer and more livable.
