Helping Area Families Have a Great Holiday
Today, UF Mover Guys lucky enough to be able to support a great local charity. We picked up and delivered 6 pallets of food for the Food4kids Backpack program North Florida. Today’s delivery will help fill boxes going home to lots of local families in need of some support for their holiday meals.
About Food4kids Backpack program North Florida:
This program was modeled after the National Feeding America Backpack Program. The national initiative has been successfully implemented locally, regionally, and nationally by individuals who saw a need and acted!
In March of 2010, with
guidance and mentoring provided by Food4Kids of Alachua, Jennifer Moore started a Food4Kids Backpack Program at Terwilliger Elementary in Gainesville, Florida. This program would not exist today without Jennifer’s commitment and the help provided by Food4Kids of Alachua.
In 2011, the Food4Kids Backpack Program of North Florida, Inc. was founded after a local parent and volunteer, Todd Morrone, became aware of the program and partnered with Jennifer to make a difference in the life of a child.
Food4Kids Backpack Program of North Florida, Inc. is a registered non-profit organization with the State of Florida and is 100% volunteer run.
