Kidango announced the expansion of its nutrition program with a recent $50,000 grant from Fremont Bank Foundation.Ê KidangoÕs central kitchen has long served fresh, professionally-designed and cooked meals every day to all Kidango preschools throughout the Bay Area.Ê With the grant, Kidango is upgrading its aging vehicle delivery fleet to better serve both its own preschools and children at other community organizations.
ÒFremont Bank Foundation has long been a partner to Kidango and the communities we both serve.Ê We are grateful to them for their continued commitment and investment in early education and the children of our communities,Ó said Paul Miller, executive director of Kidango.
In partnership with Revolution Foods and the Youth Employment Project, one of KidangoÕs first expansion contracts is in place to bring fresh meals each day to the three juvenile detention facilities within Alameda County.Ê KidangoÕs nutrition program is now also serving children at several agencies in other Bay Area counties.
ÒEarly childhood nutrition is critical to the long-term health and well-being of our children,Ó said Fremont Bank Foundation President Hattie Hyman Hughes.Ê
