Review for Tri Lakes Cares, Monument, CO, USA
Over the last few years I have been involved with Tri-Lakes cares as a volunteer and a board member. One of the hidden needs is food insecurity with school age children. This has been
demonstrated to result in lower attendance, grades and behavior problems. Tri-Lakes Cares in cooperation with D-38 school system provides snack packs to children that may have food insecurity over the week ends. These are provided to around 400 children in elementary, and middle schools on a weekly basis. This program is supported by the communities participation in snack food drives and volunteers packaging the snack packs and delivering to the schools. A program that supports a hidden need in the community and insures that food insecure children have some food over the week end.
