Feeder Program Comes To Jackson Elementary And Jackson City Pool This Summer!

With the school year at an end and summer in full swing, besides the heat lies another health issue facing children and families, hunger. Many children in our area and across the country rely on schools to help provide meals during the year, and according to Beth Stanton of the Interfaith Food Bank over 1150 children in our area struggle with hunger. Well, Mike Pingree and the Amador School District are helping to do something about it. Thanks to an option through the Nation School Lunch Program, Pingree and the district were able to set up a feeder program at both Jackson Elementary and the Jackson Pool but it doesn’t stop there, Pingree also says that they are serving roughly 300+ students a day.
