The first day of school for many local districts is TODAY!

Back to School for the nine northland districts has arrived

  Kyla  The summer break for students always seems to end certainly before most students are ready and sometimes, a few parents. Were your facebook updates flooded with back to school photo’s of all your friends children?

While the beginning of another school year is too soon for some, for many of our backsnack recipients, back to school means back to food, in several forms. A hot breakfast and lunch and of course, the weekend backsnack of food. Our school counselors are busy meeting all their students and beginning the assessment process for participation in the BackSnack program. Before long, those 4-lb packs will find their way home with hungry and grateful students.

Where is Buddy?

In our continuing campaign, Buddy is out visiting with our supporters. His newest adventures have been posted on our facebook page.  Take a look and tell us where you think he is.
