Food to the Rescue was the vision of Local Community Activist, Ashley Swann. After learning there were children who do not eat while on school breaks she knew she had to do something. With that Food to the Rescue was born. The multi-denominational Christian organization is now comprised of local churches, business, and citizens of Putnam County working together to make sure no child the community is hungry.


The program officially launched with 8 families in the summer of 2017 and quickly grew to over 350 children by the years end. And by October 2019, they are serving over 650 children!
