#gRoE, Inc. is a subsidiary of RoE Creations (a catering and community organizing small business) that is a state recognized non-profit organization. Three evenings a week, #gRoE, Inc. serves healthy snack bags to children and students who might not have food at home after school. Our aim is to allow families who are under-served or living in a food desert to have access to healthy food so that students can operate in school with their maximum potential and ultimately be successful. Outside of operating costs, ALL of our proceeds from catering, events and even our own pockets go towards feeding these kids. And their excitement has been heart-melting. The families that have already come to rely on these snacks make it so worth it. And since we started handing out snacks to students in Indianapolis Public Schools, it has been an even bigger blessing. Families who live outside of the MLK neighborhood have the option to have snack bags delivered and individuals can refer/recommend families to receive bags as well. Ultimately, #gRoE aims to contribute to the elimination of food insecurity that currently plagues 19.2% of the population of Marion County, Indiana.
