Join us in the fight to end childhood hunger in Summit and Lake Counties!


Volunteer Testimonial: "I have been inspired by the devotion of two women who have dedicated their volunteer efforts to make sure that no elementary school child goes hungry in Summit County. Margaret Sheehe and Sarah Schmidt have turned Smart Bellies from a fledgling non-profit into a professionally run organization, providing a much needed service in Summit County."
Client Testimonial: "This program has helped us a lot because the children learned to eat more variety and healthier, they also help me not to spend so much in the store because the snacks are very expensive, with that money that I save I can cover other expenses such as electricity and I can save for the weather change clothes."

Giving Activity


Smart Bellies Food Program strives to bridge the gap of food insecurity by providing bags of nutritious food to school aged children allowing them to get the full benefit of their education and development.

Background Statement

Smart Bellies was founded in August of 2018 by two friends who have a passion for serving others. Margaret and Sarah both have previous experience with similar backpack programs in cities they formerly resided and have modeled Smart Bellies after these successful nonprofits. Since its inception, Smart Bellies has grown from serving 13 children in one elementary school to supporting more than 350 families with 800 school aged children during the 2022/23 school year. Smart Bellies tackles many issues of food insecurity by delivering food directly to the homes of families in both Summit and Lake Counties.
