The #Food4TheHood Contest was our First Online initiative , we launched it as a response to the Covid 19 Corona Virus Crisis . The goal of the contest was to enlist young people to
educate their peers on how to be safe . Peer to Peer Education is a proven method of teaching .
The West Side of Rockford is largely known for shootings , poverty & blight , our mission is to bring resources and opportunities to Young People who find themselves living in communities that face these challenges .
It is an honor to help motivate Kids / Teens to be more than their circumstances , and reward them when they themselves are seeking to not only survive , but to thrive , even if the world may not have provided them with opportunities .
Many people can't begin to imagine seeing their children jumping off the bus and have to run between 3 memorials of young men who have been killed , just to get to their front
door . Children growing up in neighborhoods where there is shootings regularly need to know that their lives have value . Empathy is taught , just as apathy & ruthlessness is taught .
We look forward to your continued support and thank you .
