One of the greatest feelings in the world is knowing that we as individuals can make a difference.” 

Spread Holiday Joy

For the last 13 years, The Foundation For Central Schools has helped feed thousands of Central Unified families during winter break through Holiday Joy. As a district, Central Unified is experiencing a 70% food insecurity rate, and for some schools that number is even greater. Holiday Joy was created to provide families with groceries and essentials for a holiday meal. 

Holiday Joy Food Distribution is supported by the Central Schools Well-being Project, funded by the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Community Benefit Programs, District 27 Assemblymember Esmeralda Soria, Central California Food Bank, First Quality Produce, and Central Unified Parents & Staff.
