Childhood hunger is a problem our country cannot afford. 

In Northwest Ohio, one in five children is at risk of not having enough to eat regularly (Toledo Food Bank). This problem has only gotten worse during the COVID-19 pandemic when so many people have become unemployed.

As a child growing up in Salem, Oregon, I experienced childhood hunger firsthand. Raised by parents struggling with addiction, I regularly stole food from local stores to take care of myself because I was constantly starving. There were periods of my childhood where I was not allowed inside grocery stores because I had been caught stealing on multiple occasions. 

Never once did anyone ask if I had food at home. 

I am trying to become a part of the solution of childhood hunger by founding kP and Family (kPF) LLC, an initiative to build a fleet of food trucks in U.S. cities that will fight childhood hunger and unite communities while feeding them delicious foods. We will do this by:

Having every kPF food truck menu set up to keep food costs low but without sacrificing quality and taste. 

All of our items are made with delicious food knowledge and love so the customers will be coming back for more! Each employee will be food handler certified and will be held to the highest of health and safety standards. They will be given the tools and knowledge to limit waste most commonly found in restaurants, which usually hurts the profits that we need to be successful. 

Setting up a mini food trailer in areas where youth cannot attend their community summer/holiday meal programs. Any youth will be able to walk up and receive a nutritious meal and snack daily free of charge. Currently, the national summer meal programs reach just 16% of the children who need help when school is out of session (NO KID HUNGRY).

Creating the kP and Family community service team that will not only have our own community uplifting events but will also team up with other non-profits and charities that share our mission and help them with their events.  

After what I went through as a child, I want to do my part by using delicious food to raise funds for organizations that share our mission. So I’m preparing to open the first food truck in Toledo during the early spring of 2022. I need your help to make this happen!

Your contributions go towards a fully equipped food truck / mini trailer and start-up capital to help us start our fight against childhood hunger in the right direction. Start-up capital includes but is not limited to: State/County licenses, permits, fundly fees/perks, initial hires, inventory, marketing, launch party, or any other expense needed to start our mission off in the right direction. 

This fundraiser offers many pledge perks, including a business package that will show your customers/potential customers that your business is partnered with us to help end childhood hunger in our community. Please note that no funds raised on this fundraiser will be donated, they will all go into the capital for making our business a reality.

Even if you don’t have anything to pledge right now, it would mean so much if you could please post this Fundraiser to your social media pages to help us get the message out to food lovers everywhere with a heart for feeding hungry children!

Your pledge to help kP and Family end childhood hunger can be made securely on this Fundly page via a debit or credit card. You can also donate in person if you are in the Toledo area. Please contact us to set up a time/location.  I need your help spreading our mission to the people including your friends and family. With your help, our dream of ending childhood hunger is right around the corner.

I will be posting updates on our social media platforms as our project moves forward so you can see the impact of your pledge. Ending Childhood hunger is only a small part of our mission, but we believe it is one of our most important goals. This is why we have chosen to start our mission by ending childhood hunger.   

Please visit our social media pages for more information and to stay updated on our fundraising journey!!! While you are there, make sure to add us to your favorite social media platforms to watch and support our mission's future success.
