How KIND Started
When Jeremy Lichtenstein started Kids In Need Distributors, he was its entire workforce. Working with just one elementary school, he began making trips to the grocery store and dropping off weekend food supplies for students supported by the Free And Reduced Meal (FARM) program.
Jeremy, a top national residential real estate agent and father of two, decided to act — on the belief that child hunger is intolerable. Six and a half years later, KIND serves 27 schools and 2,056 students. In the 2017-18 school year, KIND delivered over 248,000 meals. And it’s still an all-volunteer operation.
Every six weeks during the school year, KIND’s volunteers — who now number over 140 in a fleet of at least 50 vehicles — purchase non-perishable food items, which they immediately deliver to schools. On Fridays, teachers discretely slip food for the weekend into kids’ backpacks.
KIND needs your help, so it can serve even more kids. Your recurring monthly donation of just $9 will feed one child every weekend for a school year. And every dollar you donate goes directly to help feed kids. Please help KIND make possible more nutritious weekends.
