Project H.O.P.E. (Help Our People Eat)

The Roscommon County Kellogg Youth Fund of the Roscommon County Community Foundation (RCCF) funded a food truck from the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan and it was distributed in April of 2012.  In addition to recommending the grant, the Youth Advisory Council (YAC) had many volunteers on hand to help unpack the truck and distribute the food on the following day. This “hands on” project also helps the YAC students learn that there is more to community service than just giving money. YAC also collected toiletries and they were included in the giveaway. Over 500 people were helped during this food distribution.
