posted on Monday, October 25, 2021

We are kicking off DAY 2 of Power Snack! In case you missed our first day of deliveries, check out our Facebook page to catch up.

We are at South Hamilton High School right here at the beginning of the school day where we’re dropping off 800 coupon booklets for the students and families in this district.

Between October 20th and November 15th, Iowa Select Farms employees will distribute Power Snack™ Teacher Supply Kits to schools across Iowa. In total, 89 school districts will be recipients of this program. Power Snack™ helps reduce childhood hunger in Iowa by providing kids the means to purchase nutritious food to prepare at home. Four different times throughout the school year, children identified by the school as food insecure receive a $5 coupon for deli ham and $3 coupon for a loaf of whole wheat bread.

“This program allows students to come to school nourished, healthy and ready to learn,” said Heather Holm, Superintendent of South Hamilton Community Schools. “Thank you for continuing to provide this for our students and their families.”
