Food-for-Kids is a volunteer program that serves hungry children in and around the Española, New Mexico area since 2009. We regularly provide bags of food to local children between ages 6 and 12 who do not always get enough food to eat.
Although the school-system here provides free breakfast and lunch for qualifying children, often on the weekends the children go without and get very hungry. A bag of food provided by us gives a child nutrition, reduces their hunger, and above all it gives them hope. In the face of a home situation that they usually can't change, this hope challenges feelings of despair. It gives them a greater today and a vision for a greater tomorrow.
The joy and security this program provides these children is priceless. Getting food instead of going hungry, and then becoming irritable and angry, can be the difference between a child becoming a productive member of society or turning to crime. The bottom line is, it is not just their future, these children will become our future leaders too. We hope you will join us in support of our collective future.
All donations go straight to the purchase of food for kids. All work is done on a volunteer basis. KRE is proud to stand alongside organizations like Food for Kids. Head to http://food4kidsnm.org/ to participate in this opportunity for good.
