Feed Our Rural Kids (FORK)

FORK is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization created to provide nutritional support to children from food insecure homes within eastern and central Vilas County.

To accomplish this mission, FORK has identified 4 areas by which our organization’s success will be measured. It is through these pillars that we strive to ensure that hunger does not stand in the way of success for any child.

  • 1 The first of these measures is how we gauge the success of our 5 local nutritional support programs: FORK Cares, Meals NOW, JUMP START, Formula Support, and the Children’s Pantries.
  • 2 Secondly, FORK will actively collaborate with other local organizations, businesses, and individuals who are also focused on the issue of childhood food insecurity.
  • 3 The third pillar of our success will be built through the organizations active efforts to educate our community around the issues impacting childhood food insecurity.
  • 4 The last, and some might say most critical measure of FORK and our success, will be this organization's financial sustainability. Both in support of the critical needs of food insecure children today, and our responsibility to face down chronic long term food insecurity into the future.
