posted on Friday, November 5, 2021

Here we go - Day 6 of Power Snack coming at you with our first stop in the cub den of Nevada Community School District.

"We are able to supplement student food resources with this program," said Elizabeth Gindt, At-Risk Coordinator for Nevada Community School District. "Having nutritious food available for students helps them focus on other areas of their lives and have wellness and energy to be successful with their day."

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 Nevada Community School District has 2,800 coupons to distribute to their students and families within their community.
