We are partnered with Lake Contrary Elementary School in south St. Joseph. The needs are great there. 83% of the students qualify for free or reduced lunch. The Coordinating Team for that partnership is chaired by Beth Zahnd and Jenny Moore. A table is set up in the Friendship Area with some basic information about needs and the school and ways you might participate.
One way you can participate over the summer is the Lake Contrary Community Garden that is adjacent to the school. Produce grown in the garden will help feed hungry families in St. Joseph. And, throughout the summer students, parents, and volunteers will work side by side learning about food, how it grows, etc.
