The RESQ™ Network is setup so that participating members are equipped with a tool, our RESQ™ software that links them with local food banks, soup kitchens, shelters, etc. so that community needs are resourced and provided for within each community.
In 2012, there were 15.9 million children who lived in food insecure households. An even more alarming statistic, 1 in 6 Americans face hunger every day. Every donation received through RESQ™ is put back into the community so children are not going hungry. One of the partners we work with is the Arkansas Dream Center located in Little Rock, Arkansas. They successfully feed thousands of children who otherwise would not receive a hot meal.

Good nutrition in the first three years of life is important in establishing a good foundation for their future physically and mentally, academically and economically. Food insecurity is an obstacle that threatens this critical foundation. According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), 15.9 million children under 18 years old live in households where they are unable to consistently access enough nutritious food necessary for a healthy life.
