What's Raised Here Stays Here!Kids Feeding Kids
Kids Feeding Kids
This new program is dedicated to helping the hungry right here in our community, providing a healthy source of meat based “farm to table” protein to the less fortunate who seek assistance from two of the Antelope Valley’s largest food banks, SAVES and Grace Resource Center. Kids Feeding Kids also benefits Antelope Valley youth who participate in 4-H, Grange, FFA, and Independent Livestock, who raise and then sell quality animals at the Antelope Valley Fair and Alfalfa Festival Kiwanis Jr. Livestock Auction which takes place during the week of fair.
Approximately 70% of families securing food from either Grace Resource Center or SAVES currently have school age children who lack the daily nourishment needed for healthy and well balanced lifestyles. Kids Feeding Kids grew out of an obvious need to help the less fortunate here in the Antelope Valley. Buyers at the Kiwanis Livestock Auction can sell back an animal to the open market for less than market price. The Kids Feeding Kids program now provides an option where the buyer can chose to donate the entire purchased animal(s) to the two charity food banks. These food banks will use the meat to fortify their freezers for the upcoming winter months.
How You Can Help
Kids Feeding Kids is made possible in part by contributions from our donors! Contribute today!
Please make any checks payable to ‘Friends of the Antelope Valley Fair’.
The funding raised via Kids Feeding Kids will go directly to the costs of processing and trucking the meat. It is estimated that the program contributions could potentially increase the annual food donations of farm fresh meat to Grace Resource Center and SAVES food banks by as much as 50% from the Kiwanis Livestock Auction alone.
