38% of those we serve annually are children
At the core of our Children’s Health Initiative, Feed the Future is a series of sequential, innovative programs designed to foster nutritional independence and health in children, from the womb to high school graduation.
This is an opportunity to educate and empower our children to better look after their own nutritional health. Each of these programs provides produce, food literacy training, skills to make healthy food choices, and physical activities while building a community around food.
Kid’s Farmers Market and Healthy School Pantry have won national ‘Hunger’s Hope’ awards for the best children’s nutrition program of the year from Feeding America. We are proud of this accomplishment and honored that these programs are being adopted by other food banks across the country.
