RAMP is a non-profit organization founded in 2009 by Amy Guerreri, a mother of 4 and entrepreneur, who wanted to make a difference in the lives of hungry children living in what is often known as "Hidden America." Since 2009, RAMP has been working with the Martin County Public Schools and the Martin County community at large. RAMP has become one of the most relied upon resources in Martin County, Kentucky.
All efforts are targeted specifically to Martin County kids and their families. Funds raised go directly to operating hunger relief programs including:
- Backpack Program, which sends fresh produce, healthy snacks and nutritious foods home with food-insecure public schoolchildren (kids whose main meals are eaten only when they’re at school).
- Community Food Pantry, which provides fresh produce, food and commodities to anywhere from 200-500 families-in-need every month.
- Summer Mobile Feeding Program, which RAMP helps the Martin County Public School Board of Education to operate for students who may not have any access to food at home during summer vacation
In addition, RAMP works with the Martin County community to identify critical needs and create solutions in the areas of nutrition and emergency relief intervention.
