TNT: Tot Nutrition Team
Tot Nutrition Program in Delaware OH
The Tot Nutrition Team at the Liberty Community Center provides a weekend's worth of food for children who might otherwise have to go without.
Food Insecurity at LCC
A substantial portion of LCC's children come from working poor families. Over 50% of our kids qualify for free or reduced lunch. Over the years, many parents have admitted to LCC staff that they did not have enough food to feed their children, but didn't know what to do.
We're here to help. LCC makes sure each of our children are fed a nutritious breakfast, lunch & snack.
What happens to children who go home without food> Do they go without? Yes. They go without.
Who We Are
Liberty Community Center is a non-profit community center that contains a preschool program that provides a high quality early childhood education to children for every socioeconomic group. We are located in the Second Ward district of Delaware City, which is a low income area. We serve a primarily low income working demographic and have for over fifty years, along with the help of our many community partners.
Thank you for your support. Without the time and involvement of community partners, the program would not succeed and many of Delaware's tots would go without food over the weekend.
