The Red Nose Day Child Hunger Grant will help us continue offering fresh food each day, encouraging kids to embrace a healthy diet."


The Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank sponsors sites at  Boys & Girls Club, Hazel Hill Community, Heritage Park Community, Salem Elementary and the program is steadily growing. Oya Oliver, FRFB President and CEO stated, “Club Kids II is a wonderful investment by the Red Nose Day Child Hunger Grant in the future of our community.  By bridging the hunger gap with healthy foods for children, we are giving them the tools for not just a successful school year, but a successful future!”
