Kids On The Go


20130618_094127

This morning was the launch of the Kids on the Go Mobile Pantry Program at the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank (FAFB).

The Kids on the Go program is being sponsored through a grant received from the Giant Foods – Our Family Foundation and their first-ever Child Hunger Grants.

According to Mishelle Krogstad, Agency & Programs Director for the FAFB, “the Kids on the Go program provides at-risk children with child friendly meals and snacks to take home each week during summer school. Kids on the Go helps to alleviate childhood hunger by providing food to children during the summer months when other forms of food assistance may not be available.”

Attending the celebration were FAFB CEO, Oya Oliver, Agency & Programs Director, Mishelle Krogstad
Jamie Miller, Manager, Public & Community Relations for Giant Food of Landover, Md., and Giant Food District Director Robert Belcher along with other Giant employees and CYT volunteers. A very special thank you goes out to Kelle, Helen, Hope, Josh, Paige, Scott, Stacey, Noah and all the other wonderful volunteers who made this morning’s event such a success.

We would like to say thank you to Regina Weiss and Suzanne Rossi from the Free Lance Star  as well as Ted Schubel from B101.5 for attending today’s event.  We really appreciate your support.  Also, thank you to Chris Frederick and Brian McGuire from Signs for Anything for the beautiful wrap design and for making everything you do for the food bank look great!
