Good morning friends of Care and Share!
Additionally, some of our Send Hunger Packing sites have recently started distributing fresh produce in their packs. This is exciting because we have traditionally distributed non-perishable food only through this program. In October, squash was available for coordinators to add an extra healthy treat to their students’ backpacks, and we currently have potatoes available. We’ve also shared recipes with our school coordinators so they can provide their students and families with meal ideas and helpful tips for preparing fresh produce.
Thanks to the generosity of our community and the enthusiasm of our staff, hundreds of students struggling with hunger will be able to share a healthy meal with their family and have full stomachs this holiday season.
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
