WANT TO HELP?
According to Feeding America, 8,690 children in Rowan County were food insecure in 2013. Children who face chronic hunger are more likely to have poor health, social skills, academic performance, and negative self-image. By supporting FFT, you can make a difference for these children and help them reach their full potential. Your support also shows the children we serve that they are valued by their community.
Here are a few of the ways you can make a difference:
• Donate money:
$3 provides one child food for a day
$6 feeds one child for a weekend
$25 supports one child for a month
$250 provides one child weekend meals for an entire school year
• Pack bags at packing parties
• Donate approved shelf-stable food items on our menu.
Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to arrange a date to help out with a packing party. We thank you in advance for your interest!
