Food 2 Grow On was founded in December 2011 by Nancy Howse, who while volunteering at a local school’s holiday gift drive became exposed to the reality of child hunger in her community. She heard stories about children who would not eat over the weekends and some whose only meals would be the 2 provided at the school cafeteria. She began bringing bags to the school on Fridays filled with nutritious, child-friendly food items. She enlisted friends to help with her cause and soon gained the support of local organizations, community leaders, individuals and volunteers. F2GO is now a project supported by the Rotary Club and supplies 220+ bags per week to a local school in need.
