June 2016 E-Newsletter

June is here! School IMG_2249_rev1will be out for summer soon and we are gearing up our expanded Summer Food Program!

Although summer vacation is fun, many kids lose the one meal they depend on — school lunch. That’s why we created Lunch in the Park where kids ages 1-18 can come to Hailey for a free sack lunch Monday through Friday.

This is also our first year launching Bloom as part of thumb_DSC_0291_1024our Summer Food Program. Bloom is a food, literacy and enrichment program sponsored by The Community Library and The Hunger Coalition.

Thank you to The Sage School 10th and 11th grade students who put on a Farm to Table Feast from start to finish! This wonderful event raised a whopping$6,500 for The Hunger Coalition.

June also means The Hope Garden is in full swing! We’ve had dozens of students come through The Hope Garden for tours recently. Be sure to stop by the garden and see the beautiful fresh fruits and vegetables that will be harvested for our food distributions to community members in need. Check out this video with Pioneer Montessori students at The Hope Garden tasting pea leaves and learning about gardens, vegetables, herbs and eating healthy!
