We love it and feel so honored when community members take it upon themselves to create their own fundraisers for Food for Thought! Katelyn Winthurst, a loan officer, is personally donating a percentage of her personal proceeds to Food For Thought, for all loans that she will close between August and October.
Thank you, Katelyn! We are very grateful for your generosity and giving back to your community!
Did you know, throughout the school year 12,000 snacks are provided to students per week?! That means the first month of school alone we will provide 48K snacks for teachers to have in the classroom for students that may get hungry.
Next time you are out grocery shopping, pick up an extra box of individually wrapped snacks to donate to help start the school year off strong for the FFT kids!

Happy First Day of School to our students and teachers! We wanted to share this quote from a teacher of students in our program, to show how together we are helping to fight childhood hunger, and teachers are seeing a difference in their classroom. We hope that this next school year that Food For Thought will have a positive impact on the lives of students in the program, and also be able help teachers in the classroom by providing snacks to prevent hunger during the school day.
