Proceeds of FRAC’s annual dinner benefit our Campaign to End Childhood Hunger, which has achieved major gains in feeding low-income children in communities throughout the United States. The Campaign has had remarkable successes over the years, building the reach, quality, and effectiveness of programs across the board – School Breakfast, School Lunch, Summer Food, Afterschool Meals and Snacks, WIC, the Child and Adult Care Food Program, and SNAP/Food Stamps.
FRAC has joined with a diverse group of national organizations to launch the Opportunity Starts at Home campaign to expand affordable housing options for America’s most vulnerable communities.
