It's hard to fathom, but FRF has over 120 youth in the Monthly Food Giveaway program. This program provides breakfast and lunch to teens (14-24) who are homeless, unaccompanied, and often attend school or community programs to enhance their future.
The hardship is choosing between working a job to pay for food and other necessities and attending school. Often something has to give, and it's usually those extra programs that, while free, aren't putting food in their stomachs.
FoodRaising Friends provides grab-and-go bags of food to ensure every person can be fed and gain the skills and education necessary to improve their lives. The bags require no heat or access to water to be utilized and provide as much nutrition as possible no matter where the child is staying at night!
