Project CJ

About Project CJ

Project CJ (Caring for Juniors) is a food assistance program for students who come from low-income families and attend Title I elementary schools in San Antonio. For a school to qualify as “Title I,” at least 40% of its students must be enrolled in the ‘free and reduced lunch program’.

Blue Cares and the San Antonio Food bank partner together on Project CJ to ensure children have enough healthy snack and food options during weekends.
