FARGO — Despite the disruption of how many mission-based organizations work, one Fargo group still feeds homeless children.

Golden Drive Homeless Kids drove a trailer filled with hundreds of dollars worth of food to Youthworks and Fraser Limited daycare.

These delicious food items including Goldfish crackers and pudding will ensure snack time happens for approximately 400 kids currently sheltered at Youthworks, and another group of kids who attend the Fraser Limited daycare.

Sue Baron, the founder of Golden Drive, said this kind of help is needed now more than ever.

"Every community is hurting so bad," she said.

Baron said the drive was a spontaneous move, as she had to cancel the nonprofit's annual community food drive.

"So many (people) have fun, and it makes a huge impact, but we have to do what's right," she said. "We have to think about the safety of the people."

This year would've been the eighth annual drive, but Baron is confident she'll be able to have the community food drive again next year.
