SCHOOLS WE SERVE
In November 2006, Rebecca Rund, PTA member, and Brenda Kizor, school counselor, established Fritsch Friends, a pilot program to discreetly and directly provide weekly bags of food for the school’s neediest children. Thanks to the support from our community and incredible volunteers, we have grown into an independent, nonprofit organization, Food for Thought, Inc.™ Today we serve 16 schools in our community.
Staff and Board of Directors
Food for Thought is managed and run by a small, dedicated and passionate staff and an engaged board of directors. Our focus is to drive every dollar possible toward purchasing food for the children in need in our community.
