The Wimberley Fig Tree Outreach Program 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 meals often times have empty plates throughout the weekend. School staff [nurses and teachers] also help identify children who would benefit from our program. We then provide these children with backpacks filled with easy-to-open foods to eat for the weekends.
Here’s some helpful information:
We are looking for sponsors to help feed our children in Wimberley. We currently feed 150 kids from ages PK to 12th grade at Scudder Primary, Jacob’s Well Elementary, Danforth Junior High, Wimberley High School and Katherine Anne Porter Schools. 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.
