it takes a village
"It takes a village”, a term often coined to describe community members coming together to ensure children are provided with basic human needs.
Food4Kids has mobilized an entire community ensuring children, without food each and every weekend, have access to a healthy food supply. The outpouring of support from individuals, groups, local and national businesses has been nothing short of miraculous. Whether providing one package of fruit cups, funding an entire school program, packing food for our kids or delivering food, each contribution has had a profound impact on the success of Food4Kids.
Food4Kids generates its funds through donations or one-time grants and is not in receipt of sustainable community funding. It has been through the generosity of our community, that we have been able to accomplish so much, in such a short period of time.
There are many ways to donate and support a child in our home community.
TESTIMONIALS... SAY IT ALL
"We were homeless. I called Food4Kids. They helped us immediately with food."
I never thought our family would depend on others for food
"I never thought our family would depend on others for food. With a medical problem, I had no choice but to quit work. As a single parent raising 2 great kids, there is barely enough money for rent, little money for food and absolutely no money for extras. When the school asked if I would like to involve my kids in the Food4Kids program, all I could do was cry. Knowing my children have food brings comfort. The fresh fruits, soups and healthy snacks are appreciated. Thank you for this service. The volunteers at Food4Kids are angels."
