Food ‘Rescuers’ help feed students on weekends


An Indiana school district is taking steps to make sure students have enough to eat, including when they’re not at school.  

Over at Elkart, Indiana, a non-profit organization called ‘Cultivate’ teamed up with Woodland Elementary to “rescue” unusued food and package it into weekend meals for a small group of students.

The idea behind the initiative is to provide food for students who may not have access to food outside of school time.

According to WSBT, 20 students will receive a backpack with eight frozen meals every Friday until the end of school.
