School Supply Support

Kids In Need Foundation programs support teachers who have 50% or more of their students participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). We strategically mobilize our efforts and resources through our foundational programs and initiatives –Supply A Teacher, Retail Pick-Up Program, Second Responder, and our National Network of Resource Centers.

Over 40 mission-driven organizations across the country provide teachers the opportunity to 'shop' for free for school supplies.
