Next Stop for Power Snack is in Webster City

posted on Monday, October 25, 2021

“We have many students who unfortunately don’t have enough food at home,” said Deb Peterson, the Backpack for Kids Coordinator for Webster City Community School District. “Power Snack is a great addition to our backpack program, and we truly appreciate your continued support.”

Iowa Select Farms and the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation stopped in Lynx territory to deliver 2,600 Power Snack coupon packs for students to redeem at grocery and convenience stores for $5 off fresh deli meat and $3 off a loaf of whole wheat bread.

“We are eager to be back on the road visiting schools for this year’s Power Snack™ and are dedicated to continue the fight against childhood hunger in Iowa,” said Eleanor Korum, Communications Specialist at Iowa Select Farms. “Teachers simply submit to us the number of students that are considered at-risk for food insecurity, which can really vary by community. Sometimes it is 20 percent of total school enrollment, other times it’s as high as 80 percent. We repeatedly hear feedback from teachers and nurses that our program makes a positive impact on the lives of these children and their families.”

Keep following along on our journey to end childhood hunger in Iowa.
