“We are able to send Power Snacks home with our students who have food insecurities, and it allows us to know they have sustainable food over the weekend and breaks,” said Annie Smith, Principal of Paton-Churdan Community School District. “Alleviating this worry from our students is a wonderful thing.”
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.
The Paton-Churdan Community School District has 600 coupons to distribute to their students and families within their community.
