Food For Thought is a local nonprofit organization that is dedicated to feeding hungry children in our area by providing food, as well as solutions, resources and increased awareness, to combat hunger.

Their goal is to send children home from school on Fridays with healthy food for the weekend, so they start school Monday nourished and ready to learn. They also provide food during the summer months to the children.

It’s these feel good programs that Dick Campagni’s Carson City Toyota Scion enjoys giving back to.
