Just in time for the holiday season, our friends at Cargill have offered to match funding for our Food 4 Kids weekend backpack program up to $67,500.

What a great way to take advantage of doubling your dollars and help us with the ever increasing number of weekend packets that we provide to nearly 6,300 children every Friday during the school year.

Every dollar will bring us one step closer to ending childhood hunger in the communities we serve together! https://secure.qgiv.com/for/kfb/event/779607/
