Children nationwide are hungry
Many children nationwide do not have the financial means to purchase food and basic toiletries. It is documented that more than 13 million children in the United States live in a home with limited access to affordable nutritious food. This has a direct impact on a child’s health and overall self-esteem.
ReFUEL Together, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) organization whose primary mission is to home deliver food and necessities to low-income children. Unlike many of the time-consuming local “backpack” programs ReFUEL Together has engineered a unique, easy to use, online system which facilitates the delivery of food (a Boost Box) and supplies to children in need nationwide.
Locally, we are serving 2 schools in Chatham County in North Carolina; Margaret B. Pollard Middle School and Northwood High School as a pilot program. Our goal is to serve all of Chatham County Schools by the next school year 2019-20.
Our vision is to change the way our students are being served through the current backpack programs and local food pantries. We want to deliver our students’ weekend meals and toiletries directly to our students’ homes. Our program is convenient, confidential and reliable. With our product, we can confidently serve our youth with nutritious meals directly to their door step. You, as a donor, know that your donations are helping our youth that struggle with hunger when school is not in session. Help us feed our kids. We want our non profit company, reFUEL Together, to feed all the students in Chatham County and eventually nationwide.
Through your generous donation, each month ReFUEL will deliver a “Boost Box” of items to our identified students who have registered through their local school. The process is simple: students are registered through their schools, supplies are ordered on the ReFUEL website by experienced pantry professionals and a “Boost Box” is delivered directly to the student’s home.
The ReFUEL innovative online system saves students the sometimes embarrassing and burdensome task of carrying home an extra backpack and schools no longer need to shop, haul, store, pack or deliver food. It is all done with a few clicks of a button online using the ReFUEL website.
