Students in need of emergency food assistance may visit Boca Helping Hands.

Once the submitted Referral form request is processed (usually within 2 business days) the student will be contacted to schedule a time to meet with a member of the Beyond Food Program team after which time the student may receive a three-day food assistance pack. Fulfillment of the one-day emergency food assistance pack and/or three-day food assistance pack is based on the availability of food items at time of assistance and may each be utilized one time per month per student.
