PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – On Thursday, December 9, the Jim & Tabitha Furyk Foundation will provide the food and supplies to pack over 5,000 holiday meals for at risk children in the greater Jacksonville area.

For the 10th year in a row, the foundation set up a volunteer experience for kids to help kids in their community. Students from area public and private schools are invited to pack bags with their family for other children who are identified as food insecure in Duval and St. Johns Counties.

The hands-on opportunity secures a meal of stuffing, corn, green beans, noodles, pasta sauce, ramen, canned sausage, hot cocoa, candy canes, cereal, Slim Jim’s, cookies and Rice-a-Roni to children who might otherwise go hungry during the long holiday break. With help from the sponsors of Constellation Furyk & Friends presented by Circle K, the Jim & Tabitha Furyk Foundation has been able to increase the number of bags from 500 the first year to 5,000 in 2021. AT&T, PepsiCo, Target and Conagra Brands also supported this effort.
