Road to Ending Hunger

Hunger on the Plateau is a real thing!  No child should go a weekend without food, no senior should have to make a choice about paying a bill or buying groceries, no veteran should be deprived, and no grandparent raising a grandchild should feel like they cannot provide to the next generation of their family.  RFWF is helping fight hunger across the Plateau to reach all ages and situations.

Senior Hot Meal Program

 

Whether it is a temporary need or long-term, the hot meal delivery program is designed to fill the gap of hunger for seniors, veterans,  disabled or those in need of a hot, nutritious meal. The meals are prepared fresh daily and have even been described as “just like mom’s home cooking!” Meals are delivered Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays with an optional boxed lunch for the next day. Meals are created around dietary needs ensuring NFN clients receive a healthy, well-balanced meal based on nutritional needs.

Our home-delivered meal service also serves as a welfare check, giving you and your loved ones the peace of mind knowing that we will be there to make sure a healthy meal is delivered and the clients are cared for.  This is a great program for adults trying to take care of their elderly parents and not able to tend to the basic needs on a daily basis.  NFN will help fill that gap.

Weekend Backpack Food Program

 

Many children are at risk for hunger and many families struggle to provide them the nutrition they need to thrive.  As a result, many children are coming to school too distracted by their empty stomachs to focus on doing well in school. A backpack food programs is one way to provide needed food to children who would otherwise not have adequate access to food on weekends. Many of the children we plan to serve get most of their meals at school and have little or nothing to eat on the weekends. A backpack weekend food program requires the cooperation and support of the entire community, including school officials, community organizations, faith-based organizations, parents, and children.
