The Harry K foundation, established by Harry Keswani, has vowed to raise money and donate 100% of these proceeds to help alleviate to problem of food insecurity in its local community. The H4 Initiative has pledged to support the Delaware Food Bank in supporting children’s nutritional programming within Sussex County.
Research shows that children who eat more nutritious meals are less likely to miss school, have fewer behavioral problems and perform better in school. Working with the Food Bank of Delaware the H4 Initiative will be addressing childhood hunger on all fronts – hunger after school, during the summer and on weekends.
The Food Bank of Delaware provides emergency food for 241,600 different people annually. The funds raised by the Harry K Foundation will be dispersed through the Delaware Food Bank to support School Backpack Programs, as well as establishing and instituting school pantries throughout Sussex County. The money will also support Delaware Food Bank’s mobile pantry truck. The Harry K Foundation will work closely with the food bank, staying in constant contact, communicating and coordinating where and when and to whom the trust will benefit the most. Through the committee of carefully selected community leaders and knowledgeable experts the hope and goal is to appropriate the funding to best serve, and meet the nutritional needs of children within Sussex County.
