Building Strong Futures

Home » Building Strong Futures

The foundation for growth and development is proper nutrition. In an effort to diminish food insecurity, we offer a food pantry wherever our families are, ensuring they have regular access to an abundance of high-quality nourishment.

It’s been so helpful to have food available so close to us. I don’t have a car and there are no other food pantries within walking distance. I really like that you guys put out fresh fruits and vegetables. Those are so expensive, even at Winco.

I like knowing that if I need help with food, it’s here and there is no judgement.

How we help build strong futures:

  1. Stock on-site food pantries at each of our centers. These food pantries are a key part of helping families have access to quality, abundant food.
  2. Provide food baskets around big holidays, like Thanksgiving and Christmas.
  3. Serving quality, abundant breakfasts, lunches, and hearty snacks each day for each child.


meals were served at all Giraffe Laugh centers in 2022.
