Cristyna Ramos, family involvement paraprofessional at Backman Elementary School, hands out food for students on Monday as the Tony Finau Foundation and For The Kids work with volunteers to feed 500 children each week at both Backman and Liberty elementary schools in the Salt Lake City School District to ensure at-risk children due to COVID-19 are fed through May. Monday’s deliveries contained 31,000 meals and snacks for the week, along with hand soap and hygiene kits. PGA Tour golfer Tony Finau said in a news release that his foundation is “excited to partner with For The Kids and help provide relief during an extremely difficult time. Their support of the Rose Park community, where I am from, made this partnership an obvious choice. Our hope is that by taking care of and helping these kids and their families, they will get the nourishment they need and feel the spirit of love and community that makes Salt Lake City, and the whole state of Utah, a great place to call home.”
