Hunger on the Plateau is a real thing! No child should go a weekend without food. No senior should have to make a choice between paying a bill or buying groceries. No veteran should be deprived. No grandparent raising a grandchild should feel like they cannot provide for the next generation of their family. RFWF is helping fight hunger across the Plateau to reach all who are in need of food.
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. RFWF’s backpack food program provides needed food to children who would otherwise not have adequate access to food on weekends. Many of the children we serve get most of their meals at school and have little or nothing to eat on the weekends. This program enjoys the cooperation and support of the entire community, including school officials, community organizations, faith-based organizations, parents, and children.
