Good morning friends of Care and Share!
Last week, we visited a farmers market at South High School in Pueblo. This was a fantastic trip! The Nutrition Director and members of the Student Council helped to distribute Care and Share food to their fellow students in need. More than 100 students received nutritious food, such as peanut butter, onions, apples, and potatoes. This food is invaluable to many children that rely on school food as their main source of nutrition.
The school-centered Mobile Food Pantry model is new for us, so seeing it in action was truly inspiring. This program allows us to reach older students at risk of hunger and is made possible by grants from the United Way of Pueblo County and Feeding America Strategic Partnership Investments program in conjunction with Procter & Gamble. Because of this funding, we will be able to provide food to students at each of the four high schools within Pueblo School District 60 during the school year.
