Store vendors help us kickoff Back-To-School while supporting Cape Kid Meals. 
 

Back-To-School week is a great time to highlight the foods we carry that are perfect for lunchboxes and after-school snacks. We also think it's an appropriate week to remind people that there are hungry children on Cape Cod and that by supporting Ring Bros. Marketplace, an apple and an orange is given to each of those children who receive food bags from Cape Kid Meals. As a thank you, we gave out free apples all week.  

In conjunction, all week long vendors provided us with product to sample as well as product for the children in the program. Those fantastic vendors included Made Good Foods, From The Ground Up Snacks, Yolo Snacks, Golden Girl Granola, The Good Crisp Company, Don't Go Nuts, Annie's Homegrown, Hint Water, Polar Seltzer, Tate's Cookies, and Natalie's Orchid Island Juice.

Ring Bros. Customers Donate $1,373 To Cape Kid Meals

Ring Bros. Marketplace hosted Cape Kid Meals, the nonprofit organization devoted to feeding local food-insecure children, on Sept. 7 and 8 for a back-to-school fundraising drive, according to a statement by Ring Bros.

During the two-day event, representatives from Cape Kid Meals were on hand to answer questions as well as to accept monetary donations in exchange for a bag filled with healthy snack samples donated by various vendors of the Marketplace. As a result, $1,373 was raised to benefit Cape Cod children.

In addition to hosting the drive, Ring Bros. Marketplace has pledged to provide up to 800 pieces of fresh fruit weekly to Cape Kid Meals this school year. Cape Kid Meals will include this fruit in the food bags they assemble for the almost 400 children in participating elementary schools across the Cape. These weekly food bags are given to children who would otherwise go hungry with little or no food on weekends during the school year.

Established in 2014 at two elementary schools in Dennis, Cape Kid Meals is the Cape Cod chapter of Blessings in a Backpack. From gathering, packing and delivering the food to raising money, Cape Kid Meals is an all-volunteer organization committed to feeding children identified by school social workers as eligible based on their needs. Currently available to students in 15 schools, Cape Kid Meals knows there’s a need across all Cape Cod school districts and hopes to one day be able to provide all those children with food bags.

Information about Cape Kid Meals may be found at capekidmeals.org.

2nd Annual Shark Bracelet Fundraiser

This year we, once again, sold shark bracelets at the registers for $1 each, with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy in Chatham. Being that Shark Week was later in August, we chose to sell the bracelets for just one week this year. But our customers still came out & showed their support for such an important, local non-profit by raising $700! A big thank you to those of you who bought a bracelet as well as all the great folks at the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy.

Ring Bros. Marketplace teams up with Cape Kid Meals to help feed local children

Schoolchildren in need will receive fresh fruit each week

Ring Bros. Marketplace has pledged to provide 600 pieces of fresh fruit weekly to Cape Kid Meals this school year. Cape Kid Meals will include this fruit in the food bags they assemble for 300 food-insecure children in participating elementary schools across the Cape. These weekly food bags are given to children who would otherwise go hungry with little or no food on weekends during the school year.

“The people of Cape Cod have been very good to us. They’ve afforded us the opportunity to raise our families here while doing what we love.” says Rich Pimental, co-owner along with his son of Dark Horse Beef & Deli. “So, when we became aware of Cape Kids Meals and the work they do for local children, we knew we had to be a part of it.”

Each week the food bags are filled with a variety of non-perishable food items. From soup & oatmeal to applesauce, cereal bars, and juice boxes, the children receive a wide variety of food to eat over the two days that they’re not in school. Now included in these bags will be both an apple and orange from Ring Bros. Marketplace.

“Food insecurity is a real and growing issue for many children on Cape Cod, and increased awareness of this fact will lead to increased involvement.  Ring Bros. has chosen that kind of involvement. By Ring Bros. Marketplace providing this for the entire program it enables us to use funds otherwise spent on fruit, to feed even more children.” says Tammy Leone, Cape Kid Meals’ director.

Established in 2014 at two elementary schools in Dennis, Cape Kid Meals is the Cape Cod chapter of Blessings in a Backpack. From gathering, packing & delivering the food to the more difficult job of raising the money, Cape Kid Meals is an all-volunteer organization committed to feeding those children identified by school social workers as eligible based on their needs. Currently available to students in 9 schools, Cape Kid Meals knows that there’s a need across all Cape Cod school districts and hopes to one day be able to provide all those children with food bags.
