Moos For Meals
A Barnyard Benefit For Hungry Children
WHERE: Tuscaloosa Barnyard,
11453 Turner Bridge Rd,
Tuscaloosa, AL 35406
WHEN: Oct. 27, 2-6 PM
Moos For Meals is a fall festival at Tuscaloosa Barnyard benefiting Secret Meals For Hungry Children, a Tuscaloosa nonprofit that provides food to children who are suffering from food insecurity throughout the school year.
In West Alabama, 1 in 4 children suffers from food insecurity, which means that they are not sure where their next meal will come from.
For many children, their meals come from school, but what about when school ends?
It only takes $140 to feed a child every weekend for a whole school year, and you can make that happen. By attending Moos For Meals or donating, you can help feed a child in the Tuscaloosa area.
Our goal is to raise enough money to feed 10 children.

Secret Meals For Hungry Children
Many children in Alabama rely heavily on free and reduced breakfasts and lunches five days a week. However, the weekend creates a nutritional gap leaving many children hungry when they return to school on Monday. Secret Meals fills the gap these children experience by discretely slipping into their backpack, on Friday's, vitamin-fortified and nutritional meals.
With one of the highest poverty rates in the country, 22 percent of both Alabama and Florida’s children live below the poverty level. Approximately 2,500 students are receiving Secret Meals food packs across the state of Alabama and into Florida. By partnering with local food banks, we are able to ensure hungry children have reliable access to nutritional food on the weekends. On average, $140 is the cost to provide a weekend food pack to one child, identified as going hungry, for an entire school year.
To allow as many children to receive food packs as possible, Alabama Credit Union provides all promotional and operational funding for the Secret Meals program, meaning 100 percent of every penny donated goes toward the purchase of food packs.
