This program was modeled after the National Feeding America Backpack Program
. The national initiative has been successfully implemented locally, regionally, and nationally by individuals who saw a need and acted!
In March of 2010, with guidance and mentoring provided by Food4Kids of Alachua, Jennifer Moore started a Food4Kids Backpack Program at Terwilliger Elementary in Gainesville, Florida. This program would not exist today without Jennifer's commitment and the help provided by Food4Kids of Alachua
In 2011, the Food4Kids Backpack Program of North Florida, Inc. was founded after a local parent and volunteer, Todd Morrone, became aware of the program and partnered with Jennifer to make a difference in the life of a child.
Food4Kids Backpack Program of North Florida, Inc. is a registered non-profit organization with the State of Florida and is 100% volunteer run.
