SUPPORT HUNGER CHAMPIONS
RARF is a collection of Veteran Women working together to fulfill a mission for those in need.
we believe that "flowers in the community, makes a difference, especialy roses, just by planting a seed!"
we can erase it together
My mother expressed distress during my childhood as a 5th grade student,
"that I was being bullied into giving away my school lunch everyday!"
However, at the age of 10 years old, I was already staring impoverished in it's face.
So as a family, we began to feed those in need
and it started from my father's garden - in our own backyard.

Everyone knows that volunteering is meant to improve and support our community by giving our time and energy.
With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer.
However, the benefits of volunteering are enormous to you, your family, and your community.
Make a charitable contribution that not only helps combat food insecurities to those in need and in doing so,
your donation can help to possibly save a life.
"Every small effort made is creating an even larger impact to the people and communities we serve."
Plant a Row Project
RARF judges no one and services ALL, primarily the needy through nutritional means!
Our primary goal is to assists individuals who are destitute, indigent, necessitous, needy, poverty-stricken or below poverty-line,i.e. "poor and without means."
RARF Soup Kitchen, Meal Center or Food Kitchen, our commissary we call the
"Let's Eat Kitchen" a place where food
is offered to the hungry for free.
RARF evaluates our resources regularly – food, facility, funding, and volunteers in order to have continued services to our "dinner guest."
Our commissary services are fostered as a source of food for the impoverished with our Let's Eat Kitchen through which we have created a unique program called the RARF “Plant a Row Project" where home gardeners designate one or more rows of food, to be donated, to the kitchen.
As well as receiving fresh produce from other partnered local Farmers and other organization Donors.
Our efforts support individuals, students K-12 , the Aged, Families, Veterans & their Families, the local community; and
other State and National program services.
