What is your cause and how will it make the world kinder?

We believe that the feeding of poor children is the noblest of causes. Today we feed 363 children per week, and are making a difference in our community, and the lives of these children.

How will you use the $10k?

We feed 363 children per week. We provide 5 meals per child, per weekend, at a cost of $4.14 per child. We are spending approximately $1500.00 per week, and provide food for 40 weeks. The 10,000 would help toward our annual $60,000 budget.

What impact do you hope to make?

We are feeding children, residing in families who exist below the poverty level. These children range in age from 5 years of age to 17. The meals will assist in eliminating hunger in our community and provide the energy these children need to excel in school.

Other Details

We are actively engaged in the program and have been in operation for 18 months. Funding remains a critical component of our day to day operation. This gift would help ease the constant need to gather funds and will allow us to expand our program.

Every month, KIND supports one cause with $10,000
