“Students cannot succeed in the classroom if they are not nourished. For some students, our programs are the only source of food they have over the weekend,” CC Henkel, President of Chandler Service Club said in a news release. “For more than eighty years, we have worked to address the needs of our community where they need it the most. We are extremely thankful for Intel’s support and championing our cause.”

Chandler Service Club’s Weekenders Food Program provides food to over 700 students every weekend and delivers weekend meals to 28 schools within the Chandler Unified School District, according to a news release. 

The nonprofit works directly with school staff to identify the children who are most in need of weekend food.

“Food insecurity is a present issue that impacts many in our own neighborhoods. Every student deserves the chance to enjoy their weekend without worrying about being hungry,”  Britney Zink, Intel Arizona Community Engagement Manager, said in a news release. “We have an incredibly rewarding experience working closely with Chandler Service Club’s team and fueling students to reach their full potential.” 

The snack packs assembled by Intel employees will be distributed to Hartford Elementary and Galveston Elementary students this weekend.

Intel Arizona employees volunteered more than 65,000 hours in the community in 2021 and supported over 1,000 teachers, schools, and nonprofit causes. Intel, Arizona employees, and the Intel Foundation also contributed $7 million towards Arizona-based organizations, according to the release.
