For a second year, Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino will offer The Goodness in Food, known as TGIF, a program for children in kindergarten through second grade.

In the program, participants will be guided through interactive lessons on reducing food waste and long-term solutions to hunger. The sessions will be at 10 a.m. March 4, 11 and 18 and at a time to be determined March 25.

The program will end with an afternoon at a garden where participants will plant and harvest fruits and vegetables, according to a news release.

Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino provides food access, emergency relief, education and advocacy to families in Riverside and San Bernardino counties. It opened in 1980 as Survive Food Bank in response to concern about the problems of hunger and food waste in the Inland Empire.

Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino is the primary source of food to more than 200 local nonprofit organizations, distributing more than two million pounds of food monthly to emergency food pantries, high-need elementary schools, senior centers, after-school programs and more, according to the news release.
