Thank You Pain Clinic of Northwestern Wisconsin
Feed My People would like to extend a big thank you to the Pain Clinic of Northwestern Wisconsin for its ongoing support of our Weekend Kids' Meals program. The Pain Clinic has generously donated one of the two pieces of fresh fruit featured in each meal bag. That's more than 1,400 pieces of fruit every week!
"Good nutrition is important for a growing body, which is why it's wonderful that the Pain Clinic has provided us with fresh fruit," said Ashley McCarthy, who leads the Weekend Kids' Meal program. "The children really enjoy it."
Each week, Feed My People provides bags of food for about 1,400 elementary and preschool students in Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls. Each bag contains easy to prepare foods for two breakfasts and two lunches, including two pieces of fresh fruit.
