WELCOME BACK. SCHOOL IS UNDERWAY AROUND SIOUXLAND–AND A LOCAL FOUNDATION IS WORKING TO FIGHT HUNGER IN THE CLASSROOM. TODAY I’M HERE WITH KARI TREINEN –THANKS FRO COMING IN TODAY. GLAD TO BE HERE. THE SIOUX CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS FOUNDATION HAS A GREAT REASON TO TAKE THE FAMILY OUT FOR DINNER NEXT WEEK. YES KARI YES WE’RE ASKING THE PUBLIC TO GO OUT TO EAT AT PARTICIPATING RESTAURANTS ON SEPTEMBER 10TH TO JOIN FIGHT AGAINST HUNGER IN THE CLASSROOM AND OTHER EQUITY ISSUES FACING THE STUDENTS IN OUR DISTRICT. PARTNER RESTAURANTS WILL THEN DONATE A PORTION OF THEIR SALES THAT DAY TO THE FOUNDATION TO AIDE WITH DELINQUENT MEAL ACCOUNTS, HELP STOCKING SCHOOL PANTRIES AND CLOSETS, AND MANY MORE INITIATIVES IN PLACE TO HELP STUDENTS FACING ADVERSITY. THIS HELPS QUITE A FEW PEOPLE “WE HAVE ROUGHLY 500 STUDENTS WHO ARE HOMELESS IN OUR DISTRICT AND 70% OF THE STUDENT POPULATION WHO QUALIFY FOR FREE OR REDUCED MEALS. WE KNOW THAT WHEN KIDS ARE HUNGRY OR NOT SURE ABOUT WHERE THEY ARE GOING TO SLEEP THAT NIGHT THEY ARE NOT PERFORMING TO THE BEST OF THEIR BEST ABILITY.” TREINEN WENT ON TO SAY, “SO THIS INITIATIVE IS AN EASY WAY FOR PEOPLE TO HELP THOSE STUDENTS AND MAKE A BIG IMPACT IN THE COMMUNITY.” SO HOW CAN PEOPLE HELP? THIS IS THE FIRST YEAR THE FOUNDATION HAS HOSTED THE EVENT AND ARE THRILLED TO HAVE 12 RESTAURANTS PARTNERING WITH THEM ALICIA’S TACO DOME BAR LOUIE BRIGHTSIDE CAÉ BUFFALO ALICE BURGER KING (ALL SIOUX CITY LOCATIONS) CHICK-FIL-A SERGEANT ROAD CHICK-FIL-A TAKING A LIVE LOOK OUTSIDE..
