Ruiz 4 Kids - Sometimes, a dream needs our help to come true.

We support education …by empowering hundreds of students to further their education. Ruiz 4 Kids distributes thousands and thousands of dollars to qualifying high school seniors every year.

We understand the importance of education in improving the quality of life for local children and growing our future leaders. Ruiz 4 Kids scholarships transform the dream of attending college into reality for dozens of students within the communities where Ruiz Foods has a presence.

Ruiz 4 Kids has awarded over a quarter of a million dollars in scholarships for 2014. A record-setting amount of $334,000 has been awarded to 245 college-bound high school seniors. Each awardee also receives $120 in Ruiz Foods coupons for free El Monterey products. Over the past 29 years, Ruiz 4 Kids has awarded over $2,500,000 in scholarships.

Ruiz 4 Kids and Ruiz Foods are dedicated to making the dream of education a reality.

"Education is the foundation of the pillars of hope, integrity, expertise, and leadership we need in our communities,” said Chairman of Ruiz Foods and Ruiz 4 Kids President, Kim Ruiz Beck. “By awarding these scholarships we are letting these students know we believe in their ability to succeed."

The success of the Ruiz 4 Kids Scholarship Program is due to the annual Ruiz Golf Invitational which raises funds in order to make the dream of education a reality.
