Annual Day of Action

Posted: Updated:

With the end of school comes the end of the school lunch program.

For some children, this means they loose access to regular, healthy meals.

Women's Leadership Circles all over the nation come together today to celebrate their annual Day of Action.

Volunteers collected food throughout this week to help provide nutritious meals to local kids.

Today, the food is sorted and put into backpacks for low-income families in the community.

"Last year we helped promote early childhood education so when we took a look at what we wanted to do for this years cause we heard about the need for children who were going hungry in our community and how can you learn if you're hungry," says Sara Ryckman, Co-Chair of Women's Leadership Circle.

If you'd still like to donate food items, you can drop them off at the United Way or a simple donation of four dollars and 25 cents will supply a child with enough food for a weekend.
