You would be amazed and heartbroken at the number of children in this town, that don’t have enough to eat at home. Times are tough, we all struggle or have struggled and these kids are struggling because they are hungry and not necessarily because their parents choices, but also the result for unforeseen circumstances such as layoffs, medical bills, and so forth. This is the future of Wellington! Innocent children- lets help them out!

I lived in Wichita and did a program there and loved it! We packed backpacks with food for the child and any siblings they had to suffice them for the weekend. It was an amazing program. I am pleased that you will be providing meals through the summer, but can we also not get a summer program in place for free meals? They also had meals in the summer time, usually lunch. but it was free only to children and their siblings also. These are things we should be looking into here in our city. I understand costs, but there are a lot of things that we could cut out to provide for these children who are hungry.

The Wellington Leadership team will be serving in a number of ways around the community, including a few new ones.  Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors will be placed off campus, while freshmen will be working at WHS on a variety of projects.Students will be working on a meal packaging event to benefit the Meals-on-wheels-for-kids summer program, Defore said.“Students will be working assembly line style to package meals for children in Wellington who may not have access to meals in the summer time,” she said.The leadership team will be working with Outreach, Inc (outreachprogram.org) to package high quality, easy to prepare meals for children.The cost is only $0.25 per meal.  The WHS leadership team has a goal of providing 8,000 meals at a cost of $2,000.“If we should happen to raise more money than our goal we plan to donate the excess to the Wellington Food Bank,” Defore said.If you have any questions about the meal packaging event or about Service Day, please feel free to e-mail Defore at kdefore@usd353.com–Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
