The Food Group plans spring FUNdraiser

(Sheridan, Wyo.) — The Food Group of Sheridan is planning its spring FUNdraiser for March 4 in the Sheridan Junior High School Early Gym. "We will have tacos from Taco Johns and some fun games for kids and good community (bonding)," The Food Group told Dally. [image: Inline image 1] Founded in 2010, the Food Group seeks to provide food security for the children in Sheridan County. "Food insecurity has become a national and local issue. In Sheridan School District 2, approximately 36% (depending on the month) of children are on free and reduced lunch programs. Though often hidden from their peers and other community members, teachers are very aware that many children are relying heavily on the food they receive during school. Teachers report frequent instances where children dread the weekend because there is not enough food in the house," The Food Group says. The Food Group provides healthy weekend meals for students. This program is anonymous, open to any child and provided at no cost. The Food Group operates as a program of the Sheridan College Foundation, a local non-profit 501(c)3 organization. #dally #news
