We exist to solve critical issues facing our world community providing a broad range of community services and solutions to help facilitate change.
When the greatest need is common and simple, such as in the case of hunger; there's no child that should feel the pain of hunger. We are excited to share our Youth Summer Feeding Program-Kick Kid Hunger! Kick Kid Hunger is a division of the Naomi's Heart Feeding Program where we focus on food insecurity and children 3 years to 19 yrs old. At PRK we must make sure any child that's hungry has a meal. We not only provide healthy nutritious food we teach them how to grow their own. One of our goals is creation of nutrition education. This program allows not only children but their parents to learn that proper nutrition education at an early age is pertinent to developing healthy eating & exercising habits. We also participate in food box give aways monthly and holiday assistance services.
