‘The Weekender’ provides food for students
Last school year, Maury County had more than 6,500 economically disadvantaged students. During the school year, The Weekender project provides 105 students at Riverside Elementary School with non-perishable, nutritious, kid-friendly food packaged and delivered so students can take home for the weekend.
Research has shown that in schools with a program like this attendance goes up, test scores go up, and behavior improves. We need:
Protein: Pop-top, microwavable soup or pasta
Breakfast: Pop-tarts, oatmeal packets
Fruit: Single-serve canned fruit, applesauce, dried fruit (raisins, plums, cranberries)
Misc: Single serve mac-n- cheese, peanut butter crackers, single serve 100% juice, granola bars.
Please drop off the items at Information Central, the Office Entrance, or Faith Hall Entrance.
