Mission StatementFeed the Future Forward, Inc. wants to ensure that every student enrolled in school is provided a healthy nutritious lunch regardless of his or her economic status. Feed the Future Forward, Inc. also wants to educate and inform all parents/guardians of available lunch programs, qualification requirements for each, and financial obligations throughout the school year. Finally, Feed the Future Forward, Inc. wants to supplement funds where student accounts are delinquent so hot meals are provided to all students without discrimination.

THANK YOU “WIZARD OF OZ” CAST AND CREW!
Feed the Future Forward would like to thank the cast and crew of the national tour of the “Wizard of Oz.” From March 4th-16th, the magnificent cast and crew of the show entertained the City of Houston and found it in their hearts to help support our cause. They raised $576 to help feed hot lunches to the needy students in our area. You guys rock! And, we thank you!
Happy Anniversary! A milestone has been reached!
It’s been exactly 4 weeks since our founder, Kenny Thompson, took care of the 1st school which started this great movement. With the generous gifts from the community and our nation, we have reached a milestone. As of March 3rd, Feed the Future Forward has taken care of more than 1,000 kids’ negative lunch accounts. We have been to 11 different schools in 5 different districts around the greater Houston area. We have spent nearly $7,200. We want to sincerely thank those angels who have made this possible! Our promise is to keep helping the children. Lunch Angel funds are being set up at schools to help eliminate the alternative lunches altogether. Districts are looking at their own policies and procedures to better feed their students. We are extremely proud of the changes since our story broke. We get the feeling that a new lunch program is in the works. We pray that some day all schools will have eliminated the alternative lunch programs. All for lunch, lunch for All!
Donations made on the Feed the Future Forward website have allowed Thompson to piggyback off his initial donation of $465 to Spring Branch ISD’s Valley Oaks Elementary School on Feb. 3. He has since paid off negative lunch balances at:
five schools in Spring Branch ISD on Feb. 10 ($3,338);
Aldine ISD’s Aldine Middle School on Feb. 14 ($954.02);
Houston ISD’s Sinclair Elementary School on Feb. 17 ($147.10); and
Katy ISD’s Sundown Elementary School on Feb. 17 ($627.91).
When combined with the donation to Horne on Monday, the combined effort from Feed the Future is $6,497.70 benefiting approximately 900 students in greater Houston in less than a month.
