– Landon Henriksen - University of Utah Alternative Spring Break Students
Thanks again for having us ! My experience with Serving our Kids was phenomenal . I was impressed by how efficient they were in tackling the issue of food insecurity in children and their families . Handing out the food to the kids was both rewarding and inspiring, all of them were very thankful and excited to receive the bags . How empowering it must feel for these kids to know that there are people in their community that care about them , that want them to not only succeed , but do so without an empty pantry.
Thanks again !

This is an amazing organization. Filling in the gaps where other organizations fall short, and filling so with smiles every step of the way. There’s a unique and different feeling when you walk into the warehouse, because everyone is so full of compassion and sincerity. Thank you, so much for letting us be a part of your mission!

The Edible Arrangements convention this week in Las Vegas held many, many highlights for me. Few, however matched the opportunity we had earlier in the week to join passionate volunteers of the Serving Our Kids Foundation in Las Vegas for an important project. My family and I, along with members of the Edible Arrangements corporate staff and franchisees, joined the volunteers to fill bags with fruit donated by our local vendor, Get Fresh Sales, along with other items for children in the Vegas Valley that might otherwise not have enough to eat.
Thank you, to Serving Our Kids for the critical work you are doing in your community. Changing our World, ONE Child at a time!
