The Knights Caring for Knights (KC4K) was launched in spring, 2012 to provide students and families a weekend food assistance program if they participated in the free/reduced meal programs in the school system. As awareness for the program and participation in it grew, the program became part of the program offerings of the Foundation in 2014.

In 2015, the Foundation as a 501(c)3 organization became a member agency of the Akron- Canton Regional Foodbank. This valuable resource allows the Foundation to receive free food specifically intended for backpack programs in the 8 county region served by the program. Additional food is available for purchase to supplement what is obtained through the monthly food offerings. Donations to the program help to purchase food from the Foodbank and from local Nordonia area retailers.

The program operates under the leadership of a HS staff member, student leaders, parent, student and Foundation volunteers. Food is stored in the KC4K pantry located in the High School. Food bags are packed every week and distributed directly to the student at their respective school. Any student currently participating or eligible to participate in the free or reduced meal program may participate in this program.

As the 2023-24 academic year kicks off, over 70 students are participating weekly across the district. If your family needs assistance for a week or for the entire year, we encourage you to reach out to the school counselor in the student’s building. Questions about the program? Reach out to or

If you are a high school student and wish to volunteer, please reach out to Mrs. Stephanie York for details. If you would like to donate much needed food items or make a monetary donation, please reach out to or make a direct donation on the “donate now” button on this page.
