GivingTuesday – November 29th, 2022

Each weekday afternoon, 29,000 children at 125 different school sites throughout Missouri and Arkansas will sit down for a nutritious meal. With your help this #GivingTuesday, our feeding programs can reach those who are most vulnerable in our communities, especially kids who may go hungry after school.

Through a partnership with the USDA, we are able to provide meals to local students in their classrooms at the end of the school day. In every meal, students receive a healthy serving of fruits, vegetables, whole-grains, dairy, and meat / meat alternate.

Food is a basic need that is not met for many students in the communities we focus on,” said Nutrition Services Director Matthew Cederblom. “Through donations that help fund this program, this basic need is met and helps these students perform better in school and ultimately thrive.”

All funds raised for #GivingTuesday will go towards expanding our Nutrition Services Program and making sure children across our communities continue to receive healthy and nutritious food!
