Every Dollar Feeds Kids was founded in 1999 by members of the First Congregational Church of San Rafael, California, to provide
food and assistance to impoverished children in the vicinity of Cuernavaca, Mexico. The San Rafael program has several Partner EDFK churches.
EDFK works cooperatively with VAMOS!, an independent service organization founded in 1986 by Bill and Patty Coleman and Ike Patch. VAMOS! currently supports 82 separate educational, health and nutrition projects in Mexico. EDFK provides the funds for many of the feeding programs within the VAMOS! network.
To read more about VAMOS!, go to our webpages about VAMOS! programs or visit their website at http://www.vamos.org.mx.
In the twelve years since its founding, the several EDFK partners have funded over one million meals to needy children at VAMOS! projects. We have raised more than $500,000 to support the feeding programs. Through an EDFK friend, a donation of $100,000 was made in 2004 to VAMOS! to enable the purchase of Casa Tatic, the multi-purpose building in downtown Cuernavaca serving street children and indigent seniors in the area.
Every Dollar Feeds Kids was granted 501(c)3 tax exemption status by the IRS in 2005. All donations to the program are channeled directly through Every Dollar Feeds Kids, Inc. and are fully tax deductible.
