Our mission is to remove the negative impacts of hunger, and empower a child to get the most out of their education and development by providing them weekly access to healthy, easy to prepare meals.  Watch and learn more about Food For Thought HERE

Food For Thought is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization in Florida, serving Walton and Okaloosa Counties. Food For Thought works to fight child hunger through five, year-round programs, designed to fight the negative impacts of Child Hunger in the lives of Food Insecure children in grades K-12. Our goal is to support a child’s development and educational experience by bridging the gap between school meals during weekends, Summer and Holiday breaks, as well as offering learning and life-skill resources through the Emeril Lagasse Full-Circle Kitchen and our Full-Circle Gardens. Food For Thought has been working to fight child hunger since 2010, serving students from 32 schools in Walton and Okaloosa Counties, through an-in school backpack program. But, since the onset of the Covid-19 Crisis, we at Food For Thought have had to change the way we operate our backpack program. Currently, we offer curbside food pick-ups twice a month at 5 locations in Walton & Okaloosa Counties, to serve 500-600 families each month with a bag of 30+ food items.
