The Food 4 Kids Letter Writing Campaign

Food 4 Kids Backpacks

The Food 4 Kids Letter Writing Campaign is in its eighth year of providing backpacks filled with food to children who would otherwise go hungry over the weekends. Under the leadership of Co-Chairs Joyce & Tim Goss and Joanne & Charles Teichman, this year is sure to be a success!

Each year, the members of the Host Committee (listed below) make a personal donation and ask their friends and family to join them in supporting this effort. Since 2006, when the Letter Writing Campaign began, over $2 million has been raised! 

Every day, we hear stories about children whose lives have been changed through this important program. Teachers report that children are more alert in class, perform better on school work and children report that they feel special because someone loved them enough to give them a meal.  

Gratefully,A special thank you to all involved in this year's Campaign. You are truly making a difference in the lives of thousands of North Texas children!
