Project H.O.P.E receives Grant Funding from RCCF

The Roscommon County Community Foundation (RCCF) recently presented a $2,000.00 grant to Project H.O.P.E. to assist with the purchase food for the Protein Power project. The Roscommon County Kellogg Youth Fund awarded $1,000.00 and the Roscommon County General Fund awarded $1,000.00 to support this


According to Project H.O.P.E. Coordinator LaWanda North, the use of the food bank grows during the summer months, due to the addition of school age children who typically receive free school meals. Project H.O.P.E. gives extra food to the families of these children to make up for the lack of school meals. The Protein Power grant will ensure that there will be food from the protein group, such as meat, eggs, and peanut butter, available to clients this summer.

Together we can do more. If you are inspired by this grant story and would like to support our community by contributing to these, or any other RCCF Funds, please contact us at 989-275- 3112, by e-mail at
