Our Cause

Food for young children- that’s our cause!

Did you know that approximately 18 million children across the United States participate in reduced or no cost school lunch programs and many of these young people go without food on the weekends?  We are committed to changing this and making a difference in the lives of these young people and their families.  We believe it is unacceptable that young people, the future leaders of our country don’t have the nutrition they need to learn, grow and develop.

The CE Shop Foundation, an organization committed to youth health and education initiatives, collects funds for school age backpack programs coast to coast.  Backpack programs are administered in cooperation with elementary schools and local food banks around the United States to ensure young children are fed.  Donations to The CE Shop Foundation are funneled back to a designated food bank within the state where the donor resides.
