Families of Platte Co School District #1 are invited to apply to participate in the Wheatland, Glendo, and Chugwater “Food for Weekends” Program. It is an effort of the Platte County Ministerial Association and UW Extension Cent$ible Nutrition and Food Bank of the Rockies to address nutritional needs of families on weekends during the school year. PCSD#1 students may participate in the program with parental permission.
Students pick up the backpacks on Thursdays, or the last day of school before a holiday, and then return the empty backpacks to school on Monday, or the next day of school. Volunteers then fill the backpacks to be distributed again the following week. Backpacks will be distributed as the funding for this program is dependent on grants and donations.
Applications for the program may be picked up at all Platte #1 Schools and the District Office located at 1350 Oak Street in Wheatland. Parents may also click here for the application.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call your student’s Principal or Superintendent Fischer at 307-322-3175. Please CLICK HERE to view the brochure with all the details.
