Battle Ground Public Schools recently partnered with the Battle Ground Education Foundation to distribute more 1,200 United States Department of Agriculture “Farmers to Families” food boxes at Battle Ground and Prairie High Schools on Thursday, Sept. 17.
Families needing food pulled up in their vehicles to receive a box full of staple foods such as milk, butter, cheese, salad mix, potatoes, onions and meat. Nearly a dozen volunteers loaded boxes full of goods into cars as they lined up at the Prairie High School on Thursday as another group of volunteers helped distribute food at Battle Ground High School. Those receiving food were limited to two boxes per car and one box per family.
Those wishing to help the Battle Ground Education Foundation in its future efforts of giving can do so online at bgef.org or donate during “Give More 24!” on Thursday, Sept. 24.
