Feed a Family

At Friends of Karen, we know that a family’s financial resources are stretched thin when at least one parent must stop working to care for their critically ill child. They need help putting food on the table for their family, now more than ever with the increased cost of groceries. In addition, chemotherapy, radiation, and other forms of medication used to treat life-threatening illnesses compromise an ill child’s immune system, which makes a simple, nutritious meal even more essential.

No parent should choose between paying for their ill child’s medical care and feeding their family.

Friends of Karen’s Feed A Family Program provides supermarket gift cards to families in need.

This is how you can help!
