Hunger growing in student population

Family Resources representatives - Keisha Burton, Lindsey Wilson College Bonner Scholars; Kara Iqbal and Hali Anderson, ACHS YSE; Pam Bivens, ACES FRC; and Heather Dudley, ACPC FRC - spoke at the September WATCH health coalition meeting about seeing an increased need for food among children since the aid during the pandemic has ended.

They are hoping that more help can come from services as well as citizens of Adair County to help children avoid food insecurity. Even though all students are provided free breakfast and lunch, many still need food to take home.

They appreciate donations of non-perishable snack foods they can distribute. They advised that people who make donations should avoid peanut butter snacks due to food allergies. They can't accept checks nor cash, however, gift cards can be accepted to give out.
