Support the Tomorrow’s Kids Endowment Fund
Through the Tomorrow's Kids Endowment Fund the children who need food today, as well as those who will be hungry tomorrow, will be given a promise of hope for their futures.
"Investments into the future of our children… are made with the hope of making a difference." - Perry Pokrandt Founder of Feed Our Rural Kids.
It was FORK's desire to make an immediate difference in the lives of children from food-insecure homes that compelled us to create the Feed Our Rural Kids organization and the programs we financially support. Yet, it is now clear we also need to answer the question, “What about tomorrow's kids?”
“Actions move an ideal toward reality... Your donation will help us to build a tomorrow where hunger does not stand in the way of opportunity for any child.”
Scott Foster District Administrator, Northland Pines School District
To date all the efforts of Feed Our Rural Kids and the community have been to nutritionally support children who need help today. That has been done, and continues to be done, to great effect.
The expansion of FORK’s organizational vision has led us to create the Tomorrow’s Kids Endowment Fund as a legacy of hope for generations of kids to come.
The beauty of the opportunity presented by the Tomorrow's Kids Endowment Fund is that it stands as a promise to all children, not yet born, not yet challenged by life or not yet hungry. It says to them that a helping hand is just within their reach.
“As time goes on, the board hopes a legacy will be built for tomorrow's youths. Yet at the same time funds generated by the growth of the endowment will be utilized to support FORK programs today"
Keith Kentala, Chairman, Tomorrow’s Kids Endowment Fund
This endowment provides FORK an opportunity to create a sustainable future. That is a reality where the organizations future boards of directors can continue the mission that FORK was created for; but without the entire burden of the financial responsibility they inherent.
FORK was created to provide nutritional support to children from food insecure homes.
We hope that you will find the opportunity to help is more than compelling, We hope that you see it as inspirational.

Frequently Asked Questions
It is a financial tool created by Feed Our Rural Kids Inc (FORK), to accept and invest donations made today, so that we can fund our childhood nutrition programs in the future.
The Fund will support FORK nutrition programs through an annualized cash distribution calculated as a percentage of total fund assets. This ensures the sustainability of those programs and their benefits for the future through asset growth of the endowment’s investment portfolio.
Families and individuals donate for their own reasons. Sometimes giving is a matter of smart estate or tax planning. Although, a donor’s reason may simply be founded in the fact that they themselves grew up as a child with needs not fully met. Perhaps an individual wants to make a gift in memory of, or in honor of, someone who made a difference in their own life; someone who gave them a hand up. Or maybe, it’s that they see the value in leaving a legacy that will support generations of children yet to be born, yet to be challenged and yet to be hungry.
Author John Holmes wrote, “There is no greater exercise for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.” We suggest that there is no better time than today to make a financial gift or pledge your support.

“For years, my wife taught in the St. Germain Elementary School and experienced firsthand the number of children living in a food insecure home. Over those years, she was an advocate for the students in whatever way possible. Being a member of this committee is my chance to help those kids who experience childhood hunger, one meal at a time!"
“Growing up in a sometimes food subsidized home gives me a story to tell. Being chairman of the Tomorrow’s Kids Endowment Fund gives me a reason to tell it.”
