PINC selected local nonprofit Feed Our Future as the beneficiary for the June 4 party. Acccording to Jessica Nazaroff, Feed Our Future CEO and co-founder, that will allow the organization to feed 100 more hungry children per week.
Feed Our Future delivers bags of food to local school children in need. Since launching the campaign in 2014, Nazaroff and cofounder Shelby Dart have seen the organization grow exponentially. Feed Our Future currently reaches 260 elementary school students each week, providing a weekend’s worth of food to students who, for whatever reason, do not have access to adequate food at home.
Along with the addition of 40 children participating in the weekend meals program at Tilley Elementary School, Feed Our Future will be able to feed 400 students at three different locations.
“Being selected as PINC’s beneficiary is a huge honor for Feed Our Future. These funds will help us continue our mission and grow the number of children that we are able to commit to serving in our community,” Nazaroff. “We are thrilled about the opportunity to grow with the help of PINC and are thankful for the support!”
