Holiday Food 4 Kids
During Christmas break, many families struggle to feed their children. RVF4K provides extra food to be sent home by the schools during this break. In 2018, we provided 21,000 meals during the holiday season.
Food 4 Kids: Spring Break
Spring break is another difficult time for children dealing with poverty and food insecurity. This week out of school means no free breakfast and lunch each day. To fill this gap, we provide extra food to be sent home by the schools during this break. This program provide meals for approximately 1,000 children.
Summer Food 4 Kids
During the summer months, we provide weekly food packages to children. These contain cereal, peanut butter, tuna, crackers, fruit & vegetables, and healthy snacks. Each package contains enough food to provide two meals per day to each child. In 2018, we provided over 118,000 meals during the summer break.

During the school year, RVF4K provides food for the weekend backpack programs at Russellville, Atkins, Pottsville, and Dover schools. This includes items like cereal, tuna, popcorn, granola bars, and fruit & vegetables. This program serves over 1,000 children each week.
