George LeventhalReal Foods for Kids Montgomery is truly a special organization. I first became involved with RFKM over three years ago. During this time they have been able to work collaboratively with MCPS on a host of issues ranging from ingredients in school breakfasts and lunches to the types of food, operating hours, and availability of vending machines on school property. Their advocacy work has resulted in positive changes for students. RFKM continues to get results for those who matter most--our children.

RFKM is a small, grassroots organization working for your kids and the kids in your area, getting concrete results in changing the school food. We have a small budget and only one full-time employee, but make use of many interns and volunteers each year to handle the workload. We sincerely need your support to sustain our work. All donations are tax-deductible through our fiscal sponsor, Chesapeake Institute for Local Sustainable Food and Agriculture.

Sustainers 

Sustainers help us have a predictable source of monthly income by giving their donation in monthly recurring donations on their credit card, which is arranged through PayPal. A $10/month donation is about equivalent to one lunch out a month. How many lunches out would scratch-cooked, healthy, chemical-free food at your child's school be worth to you?

I have supported Real Food for Kids - Monica Medrek Montgomery (RFKM) over the past two years because I believe in the value of setting our kids up for success in the classroom - and that begins with eating healthy meals for sustained attention, optimal nourishment, and for their general wellbeing. RFKM is an effective grassroots organization that has offered valuable assistance to all Montgomery county schools that are aiming to improve their school food offerings. Nearly every school in the county has a parent that has joined RFKM, and as a result they can easily access tools and help from other representatives as well as RFKM’s leadership. In addition, having volunteered my time to fundraise for RFKM, I can attest to the fact that it is a responsibly managed organization. So I feel that my donations are not only going to a worthy cause but that they will be spent well.

Joe HawkinsBack in early 2015, I became aware of RFKM through its e-newsletter. I reached out to RFKM with a suggestion and they responded immediately--they even liked my suggestion. At that time, my own professional interests in children's health clearly overlapped with many of RFKM's goals. I got hooked. I donated. With retirement approaching, I decided it was even time to give time back as volunteer and so I joined RFKM's Advisory Board. It all makes sense to me and I'll continue to give.
