Servings of Produce Harvested

When capacity and funding allow, KFB staff analyzes the most up-to-date data to determine our next service location. As every school has children who are experiencing food insecurity, our goal is to identity where our resources will have the greatest individual and community impact. Please see our Nourish commitment for the criteria being used.

Weekend Meal Program

In FY23, KFB expanded its weekend meals to provide 5,400 meals each weekend at nine schools in Kent County.

4,188 youth participated in our nutrition education programming provided by our Learn team.
