KANSAS CITY, Mo. (PRWEB) November 21, 2018
Food Equality Initiative (FEI) is excited to announce our selection as one of ten finalist in the Rachael Ray Feed It Forward Contest! The second annual contest provides an opportunity for one grassroots organization to win $5,000 to feed it forward.
The next step in the judging process includes a community voting period. You can cast your vote by “liking” the Food Equality Initiative logo on the Rachael Ray Every Day Facebook Page November 19 – November 26th. Individuals can vote once per day during the voting period.
“We are honored to be a finalist in Rachael Ray Feed It Forward Contest. Now we need the support of the Kansas City community,” said Emily Brown, Chief Executive Officer of FEI. “Most Kansas Citians don’t know that our area is leading the country in providing free-from foods to those who need it the most. We established the nation’s first allergy-friendly and gluten-free food pantry in the nation, right here in Kansas City. We are so excited to announce this opportunity that will enable us to feed more people.”
