COLLEGE GO WEEK!  September 23-27th!

Feeding Tomorrow’s Future Today

Wells County 4-H will once again assist in filling that weekend food gap by sending food packs home with students in local schools.  The food will be in a grocery cloth bag or backpack that will include nutritious food and snacks for the family for the two days of the weekend.  These food packs will be distributed at the end of the school day each Friday afternoon or the last day of the school week in the case of holidays.  The program will continue each week until the end of the school year in May. Families may sign up at any period of time throughout the school year by let your school counselor know.  The program is free.

If your family is interested in participating, please contact the school office.  We will do our best to ensure that this program is confidential. Students will not be identified as participating.  They will be allowed to pick-up their pack each Friday a few minutes before leaving school or through other arrangements.

Thank you to all of the local churches, businesses, organizations that support this effort and also thanks to the 4-H volunteers who will be taking on this project (packing the food bags, etc.) as they work to make a positive difference in our community while addressing the hunger needs of families.
