An Annual Expression of FORK’s Gratitude
The Crimson FORK was created to be an annual expression of FORK’s gratitude for the non-monetary contributions of an individual, organization, or business to mitigate childhood food insecurity across central and eastern Vilas County.
The one and only defining factor or qualification, so as to be recognized, is what the Feed Our Rural Kids Board of Directors determines as that year’s ‘best effort’ in the mitigation of childhood food insecurity within the jurisdiction of the Feed Our Rural Kids organization.
This effort at mitigation and its value to the communities that FORK serves can be measured over any period of time. It might be a single event or project. It might be recognition for a higher level of contribution as measured over weeks, months, or years.
Nomination can be taken year-round from the link below.
Determination of Honoree
The final vote for the previous year’s honoree will be taken on the first Thursday of January at the monthly meeting of the FORK Board of Directors.
Announcement of the Honoree
Announcement of the individual, organization, or business to be honored will be made to the public by the last day of January.
2021 Honoree: The Vilas County News-Review
“To clarify, success is seldom achieved in a vacuum, as we do not accomplish anything on our own,” offered Scott Foster, Vice President of FORK. “It is imperative that each of us take the time to recognize those who helped us to achieve our success,” he continued. “It was unanimously clear to our board of directors, that FORK would not be where it is today without the support of the Vilas County News-Review.”
“We are honored to be recognized for the efforts of the News-Review team in telling the FORK story to our readers throughout the past year,” said Kurt Krueger, Publisher of the Vilas County News-Review. “Children from food insecure homes deserve the hand up given them by FORK and the other local nutrition support programs.”
