Power Snack Soars into Afton

posted on Wednesday, November 17, 2021

We're soaring into Eagles territory in Afton this morning to drop off 1,200 Power Snack coupon booklets and 200 pork sticks at East Union Community School District.

Tawnya Jones, Food Service Director, and her team see first hand the hungry students coming through the lunch room. Each year they have received Power Snack, they get positive responses from students and parents.

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.
