This is a simple, cut and dry 501c3 non-profit Organization. Here is what we do. We participate in a week long mission trip to Nicaragua ( the second poorest country in the wesern hemisphere) tree times a year. We take 100% percent of donations collected from our website RiceAndBeansFoundation.org , through Facebook, or the founders personally and buy 100 lb bags of Rice & Beans. We as a group along with anyone staying or working in the hotel, seperate the 100 lb bags into family sized portions into Ziplock bags, and load them on to a van paid for by the founders. The Local driver takes anyone who would like to participate in the Rice and Beans delivery to the poorest neigborhood that we can find. With the help of many volunteers, and nicaraguan natives we distribute Rice and Beans until we have no more. This past January we delivered 3000 lbs of Rice and beans to families and children who may have gone hungry that week. This experience has been one of the most fullfilling of my life and I encourage everyone to become involved however they are able. We could not do this with out our volunteers and loyal contributers! Thank You so much for you help and support. ~Kelley Clark, Director of Community Relations~
