On May 1st, we shared that our community had received a challenge from our friends at the Prosser Charitable Foundation. For every gift that anyone made of $20 or more before June 15th, the Foundation would amplify it with an additional $200, up to a total of 300 gifts.
Since that time, our community came together in ways big and small. Kids had birthday parties and invited their friends to bring a donation; office teams held collections; people made their own donations online and invited others on their social media to do the same.
Together, our community surpassed the goal, with more than 300 people stepping up to make a gift to feed kids in our community. As a result, the Prosser Charitable Foundation will give a total of $60,000 to BB4CK. Add this to the contributions of more than $130,000 from our community, and together we have made an incredible impact for kids who would otherwise go to school without enough to eat.
Whether you gave $20, $100 or $1,000, your gift was amplified by $200 – and together with the gifts of so many others in our community, it makes a huge difference for kids in our city.
Together, we can do anything. Thank you for being part of the BB4CK community, and thank you for feeding kids!
To celebrate the conclusion of the spring #GiftALunch campaign, we were on Facebook Live! Check out the video here.

Adapted from a Martha Stewart Recipe, we love to make these cereal bars at the BB4CK Kitchen!
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
pinch of cinnamon
3 cups Cheerios
3/4 cup raisin
Line a baking pan with parchment paper or cooking spray.
Mix the butter, sugar, honey, salt, and cinnamon in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Continue to boil for 1 to 2 minutes, then remove from heat immediately.
Stir in the cereal and raisins. Pour the mixture into the lined/sprayed pan, and flatten with a spatula.
Let cool completely (about 30 minutes) and cut into squares. Enjoy!
