Frequently Asked Questions

If you are here, then we know you care about hungry children right here in Milford!  Thank you.  

We hear great questions like these:

When can I volunteer to pack bags?  Our Sign Up Genius Packing Schedule will be up in August!  Check back or visit us on Facebook for the schedule release.

What happens to these kids over the summer?  For now, we are collaborating with Milford Public Schools Food Services and have alerted the families in our program of the many resources available to them right here in town. 

What does my sponsorship cover? $300 can fill 40 weekend bags (at $7.50/bag).  A sponsorship is for a particular kid, which builds a sense of food security over the school year.  We gladly receive donations for any amount!     

What's in the bag of food? We choose food similar to the CT Food Bank program that is nutritious, non-perishable, pre-packaged, pre-cooked, can be eaten hot or cold, and that children WANT to eat.  These are foods that kids can prepare with little assistance - food that fills them up!

How can I personally help?  You can sponsor a local child.  You can help us pack bags.  You can share this mission and program with your civic organization, business or church to consider sponsoring and joining our mission.

What if my business is able to give?  Great.  We are a non-profit.  You can set up a matching opportunity, too.  We have received sponsorships from businesses in honor of employees as well. 

How could our Milford Community work together to alleviate local child hunger?  We frequently present Milford Food 2 Kids to organizations and churches, and are excited to share the mission with the community.  For Milford Food 2 Kids to take care of all the hungry children in need, and for it to have sustaining powering, we need the efforts of the whole community. 

How can I share this message with my friends and organization?  Share us on Facebook: Milford Food 2 Kids, contact us:, or call Michele Steinlauf: 203-258-8182 or Rev. Ashley: 203-877-4277 ext. 309 

Will a Food 2 Kids representative come to my organization and present the program?   Absolutely.  Contact us. or call Michele or Ashley at the numbers above.

What impact does this program have on the students?  We are trying to feed kids.  When a child is fed over the weekend, he can come to school on Monday ready to learn.  When a child is fed over the weekend, she will be able to focus in class during the week and not worry about the weekend.

How can my PTA get involved? PTAs can discuss the program at their meetings, even talk about it over the summer.  Please consider including Milford Food 2 Kdis in your budget so that you can be a part of the solution to hunger among the kids at your own school.  Ask us about Coin Drives!!!  And we would like to visit a PTA meeting at your school and tell you about the program.  We are grateful for Mathewson School, Orchard Hill Elementary and Pumpkin Delight Elementary who held Coin Drives raising funds to support children in their schools and others.
