$10,000 to Support Club Kids Program

The Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank has been awarded a $10,000 grant from the CarMax Foundation to provide snacks for children ages 4-18 in participating schools. According to the FRFB children’s programs coordinator LaToya Brown “Because hunger can have long-lasting impact on children, Club Kids is a vital part of opening doors to success for children. This grant will allow us to provide snacks and juice for the 3,000 children we feed at 41 sites throughout the region.”

The food bank serves as the charitable food hub for 69 non-profit and faith-based organizations throughout Stafford, Spotsylvania, King George, Caroline, the City of Fredericksburg, and Locust Grove. The mission of Club Kids is to provide nutritious snacks to at-risk children in an environment that is safe, accessible, and convenient. Club Kids is a structured at-school snack program providing nutrition for children. Oya Oliver, FRFB President and CEO stated “this program ensures children do not go hungry during the school day. We are so thankful to CarMax for this opportunity to help children avoid the stress and anxiety that comes with being hungry in school.”
