About Life Time Foundation
Life Time Foundation is a public non-profit, committed to helping children grow up strong, smart and loved. They believe that for children to reach their full potential, they must have access to nourishing meals. This is why they partner with our country’s school food professionals and support their efforts to keep highly processed foods out of school meals, while increasing the amount of fresh and simply prepared foods.
But today their partners are facing an urgent challenge, one they took on without hesitation when schools closed – to continue feeding our children through the unknowns of COVID-19. From walk, bike and drive thrus, to bus delivery, the feat to feed our children has been nothing short of remarkable.
Challenges will only grow with the start of the new school year, so they are focusing their efforts on assisting with the ever growing and changing needs. From face masks and sanitizers, to critical food safety equipment, school nutrition professionals are on the front lines committed to feeding our children. We applaud and support them by providing funding for the essential supplies needed to safely continue serving kids and encourage you to support them. Please consider donating, 100% of your gift will benefit Chicago Public Schools. For more information, please visit www.ltfoundation.org.
