Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK) announces the 40 school districts and more than 175 schools that are recipients of School Breakfast Grants for the 2017-2018 school year, provided through funding from Kellogg Company and Kellogg Company Fund.
The organization Blessings in a Backpack provides food to needy kids on weekends throughout the school year. Blessings in a Backpack is a 100% volunteer organization, and the Waukesha chapter started in 2012 feeding 25 kids in one school; and now, they distribute about 1200 bags of food each week in 5 schools in Waukesha and 6 in Oconomowoc. Joining us to discuss their mission and how you can help them achieve it is program coordinator Regina Estrada. Blessings in a Backpack’s annual fundraiser, “Bridge the Gap”, takes place October 14 at The Legend of Brandybrook in Wales. For more information, visit BlessingsInWaukesha.org.
