About the Kate & Justin Rose Foundation:
Feeding hungry tummies and curious minds is what the Kate and Justin Rose Foundation is all about. Its programs focus on a three prong approach to improving children’s lives by providing nutritional support, funding education and providing ‘first exposure’ positive life experiences for children. Through nutrition, the Foundation teamed up with Blessings in a Backpack beginning in 2009 to provide weekend nutrition to children who would otherwise go hungry. Through education, the Foundation teams up with Book Trust and provides books for children from low-income families; books they choose themselves that become their own. And through first exposure experiences, introduce children to opportunities through field trips and experiences to open their eyes to opportunities.
