Together, No Child Will Go Hungry
February 2012 - The reality of the child looking for food in a dumpster in Florence was revealed to a shocked community. FB4K and members community wide got busy. We began working together with a mission that NO CHILD WILL GO HUNGRY in Mapleton & Florence. Fund raising began in earnest, and over 30 children most at risk for weekend hunger are supplied with nutritious food.
2013 - Over 30 local Sponsors/businesses are now contributing to FB4K
2014 - FB4K had an incredible October 'FUN'd raiser. It featured a Benefit Concert with the 'Singing Loggers Trio,' a popular local group. Intermission featured a Dessert Auction, with baked goods donated by two local Women’s Groups. What a delicious, fun time everyone had! Best of all, over $15,000.00 was raised to purchase food for the FB4K nonprofit program.
2015 - Local churches add another $6,800 to our funds...money raised by community children themselves!
2017 - FB4K now feeds approximately 100 children on weekends of the school year.
