There are children within our school community who only have access to a nutritious meal during the school day. A group of parents and staff members joined together to create KSD Nutrition on the Weekends to help address this need.
The concept is simple: children at risk of weekend hunger receive a bag of food that is child-friendly, nutritious, nonperishable, and easy to eat. Backpacks will be distributed every Friday at school to provide 50 children in need with meals for the weekend for the duration of the school year. We are also partnering with local nonprofits and area food pantries to assist in this effort.
KSD Now plans to kick off the program at the beginning of the school year. The goal is to raise $10,000 by August 1.
Please consider donating to this worthy cause by donating online or send a check to Kirkwood School District, with KSD Now in the memo line, 11289 Manchester Road, Kirkwood, Missouri 63122.
Every dollar donated to KSD Nutrition on Weekends (NOW) will help provide a local child in need with healthy meals on the weekend.
