Ryder Lake Grape
The Need to Feed
Food donation call out for Vedder Elementary
Ryder Lake Farmers' Institute, for Melanie Reuter
ey Neighbours. I'm involved this year with the Vedder Elementary breakfast program. The school feeds about 25 kids a day give or take, with many more near the end of the month.
The kids are primarily from impoverished homes, many with family members with mental health or substance abuse issues or both; some of the kids are just hungry, woke up late, had no food in the house that morning, or just want the adult connection in the morning.
food/staffing comes out school's operating budget. Save-on foods graciously
donates some items every week.
To donate, visit the school or contact Melanie via e-mail here.
