Kitchen on the Street

The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, Arizona Chapter, is pleased to partner with Kitchen on the Street (A Non-Profit Organization) this holiday season to serve the hungry and hurting of the community! Many children receive food through school lunch programs during the week but go hungry on weekends and holidays. Kitchen on the Street's mission is to provide these children with food on weekends and during holidays, in addition to the breakfast and lunch they may receive during the school week.

The Arizona Chapter has volunteered for a Bags of Hope packing on Saturday, January 11, 2020 from 9 am to 11 am. Bags of Hope are bags which fit in their backpacks that include individually portioned, shelf-stable meals and snacks for in-home weekend consumption. One family meal is included to encourage parent and child interaction during mealtime. These Bags of Hope are distributed at school on Friday afternoon, so children receive food and nutrition outside of School. Each bag contains 50 grams of protein and 20 grams of fiber. It needs no refrigeration and is easily transported home to provide consistent nourishment to a child in need.

If you cannot volunteer for our Bags of Hope packing, no worries, you can provide food or monetary resources to Kitchen on the Street through the Chapter’s own website location (see links below.). We will also be accepting food and monetary donations at our December training event (See food list.). Donations qualify for dollar-for-dollar tax credit off Arizona taxes. Individuals can donate up to $400, married couples $800.

The Arizona Chapter is requesting that members interested in assisting with this effort sign up to volunteer on the Chapters website, www.cfe-arizona.org, or click the link below. If you are unable to make it on January 11th, please visit our Kitchen on the Street website location below to donate food or money.
