KSD NOW – Nutrition on the Weekends
KSD NOW – Nutrition on the Weekends – is a program that provides monthly boxes of food for students in Kirkwood School District experiencing food insecurity. Within the Kirkwood School District community, there are children who only have access to nutritious meals during the school day. In fact, about 9% of students qualify for free and reduced lunch – equating to over 500 students who are experiencing some level of food insecurity.
Recognizing the hunger gap, a group of Kirkwood School District staff members and parents have joined together to create KSD NOW – Nutrition on the Weekends – to help address this need.
The concept is simple: Children in Kirkwood School District at risk of weekend hunger receive a monthly box of food that is nutritious, child-friendly, nonperishable, and easy to eat.
KSD NOW is provided at no cost to families, and we rely solely on donations to purchase food for our students. We welcome your financial contribution to keep KSD NOW running to support our students.
Please consider donating to this worthy cause. Every dollar donated to KSD NOW Nutrition on the Weekends will help provide a local child in need with healthy meals on the weekend.
