Popular Towanda Kids’ Meals Program Seeks to Grow

Over a cup of coffee, the public has an opportunity to share ideas and suggestions for the Towanda/Benton LunchBox 2016

  • Offered for the first time in Towanda last summer, the LunchBox is a free meals 2016.04-23.CommunityChatprogram sponsored by Kids Need To Eat, Inc. (KN2E) for kids ages 18 and younger. Over 3200 meals were passed out in Towanda last summer.

A community chat to exchange information and learn about the LunchBox is Saturday, April 23, 10:30 am, at the Towanda Senior Center.

  • Community members in and near Towanda and Benton are invited — especially families whose kids came to the LunchBox last summer or might come this summer, and persons who might volunteer or otherwise support the program.
  • KN2E is seeking feedback about the LunchBox – including foods to be distributed, how to get more kids to participate this summer, and the program’s format.

A Salute to Donors & Volunteers 2015!

Kids Need 2 Eat and our community was blessed this summer with generous donors, fabulous partners, and awesome volunteers who helped pass out over 16,000 free meals to children at the El Dorado LunchBox and the Towanda LunchBox meal sites.  Thanks to them, we are feeding our community’s future, and kids returned to school more ready to learn. They are listed here – if you know any of them, please join me in thanking them for a job well done!
