5th Annual Golf Tournament benefiting the Second Harvest Food Bank BackPack Program Announced
Food insecurity exists in millions of households in America, many of those containing children. The National School Lunch Program helps Warren County students during the school year by providing free or reduced meals during the week, but many children need support during the weekends. That is why the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest Pennsylvania’s BackPack Program is so important.
Second Harvest Food Bank of NWPA and the Warren County School District (WCSD) are fighting local food insecurity by offering the BackPack Program to needy district students. The program provides students at Eisenhower Elementary School, Sheffield Area Elementary School, Warren Area Elementary Center, Youngsville Elementary School, and Tidioute Charter School with a package of nutritious, easily prepared food each Friday to get them through the weekend. The impact has been tremendous, as has been the support of our local businesses, organizations, and communities.
Feeding our students through the BackPack Program takes both volunteers and funding. To raise funds, the local partners of the Second Harvest BackPack Program have organized a golf tournament, with the hopes of raising enough funds to offer the BackPack Program to at least 30 percent of qualified Warren County students. Here is the information on this year's tournament:
Date: Sunday, September 30, 2018
Time: Registration, 12 Noon | Shotgun start, 1:00 P.M.
