Introducing FORK Cares
The mission of Feed Our Rural Kids (FORK) has been, from the beginning, to raise money in order to provide nutritional support to school-aged children from food insecure homes within the Northland Pines School District.
A new program, FORK Cares, will reach out to children to provide incremental nutritional support during the isolating summer vacation months. Through this new program, children whose families qualify for free school meals during the school year, will have the opportunity to receive Fork Cares Packages.
A FORK Cares package will consist of 12 supplemental meals and be delivered once a month directly to the child’s home address.
“The months of June, July and August present as a food desert for many children. The FORK Cares program will, at least, begin to address these challenges for the children who participate," states FORK President Perry Pokrandt.
The summer vacation challenge around food insecurity for school-aged children is large, and FORK Cares needs your help to take on that challenge. Individuals who would like to participate financially can simply click the FORK Cares link below.
Thanks for your support!
