Friday Kid’s Pak

index.phpWe had the pleasure of interviewing Nancy May, President and Sharon Edleman of Friday Kid’s Pak. As a part of a A Heart Like His Foundation, Friday Kid’s Pak is a weekend food program for local homeless children. A Heart Like His Foundation, Inc. was established to change the world for hungry and starving children. These children have no control over their homelessness or family situation – they are innocent in their circumstances. These at risk children are fed in school during the week, however many leave school on Friday not knowing if they will eat a meal before returning to school on Monday. Friday Kid’s Pak goal is to provide these children a Friday Kid’s Pak containing: 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 snacks, 2 fruit cups, 2 milk boxes and 2 juice boxes. The children will receive their Friday Kid’s Pak from a school administrator every Friday during the school year.  Please listen to this interview to find out more and hear their mission to change the world. They can be reached by phone at 954-793-2487, or on the Friday Kid’s Pak website here.  Listen to the program here:
