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."
WITHOUT FOOD4KIDS, MY KIDS WOULD GO HUNGRY
"My husband has been out of work for 6 months and even with a college degree, he will start to apply for jobs at local fast-food restaurants. We lost our house and now live in a 3 bedroom apartment we can barely afford. I make minimum wage and feel as though I need to take on another job to help make ends meet. My 3 kids receive Food4Kids backpacks. At first, I was ashamed. I now realize that we will not need this service forever, only for now. My embarrassment has turned to gratitude. Without Food4Kids, my kids would be going hungry."
