)-- The Frank S. Flowers Foundation selected the Food Bank of South Jersey’s Kids Café and Snack Zone programs to receive a $5,000 grant to help feed food insecure latch key kids in Gloucester County.
The Foundation was created under Mr. Flowers’ Last Will and Testament following his death in 1979. Mr. Flowers was a successful banker and a resident of Woodbury, New Jersey. His primary philanthropic goal was to support and improve Gloucester County and organizations in which he was involved during his life. The foundation provides grants to educational, youth, health-related, and religious organizations that are primarily located in Gloucester County, New Jersey.
In 2012, the Kids Café and Snack Zone programs provided hot meals and afterschool snacks to more than 9,300 children in Gloucester County and distributed more than 8,300 pounds of food. With the additional funding from the Frank S. Flowers Foundation, the Food Bank of South Jersey will be able to expand the number of children enrolled in the Kids Café and Snack Zone programs in 2013.
