Custer County kicks off Food 4 Youth Challenge (October 2-18)

Adams Land and Cattle is proud and excited to organize their fifth annual Food 4 Youth challenge. Adams is partnering again with local businesses and surrounding schools to assist with their backpack programs, which provide food and other needed items to send home with students. The backpack program is a great asset to many students who may not know when their next meal will be.

In addition to supporting the backpack programs, the Food 4 Youth Challenge will also be working to fill the shelves of our local food pantries.  Please help us ensure that every Custer County student is avoiding hunger by assisting with this year’s Food 4 Youth challenge.

“Last year, through the help of the community and 35 businesses and organizations, we were able to donate over 5,548 snacks and meals to Custer County backpack programs and food pantries, as well as over $3,663 in gift cards and monetary donations to support their future needs,” said Liz Babcock, Director of Communications at Adams.  “We hope that we can surpass those numbers to help ensure our local youth have nutritious meals at the end of each day.”

The challenge will run from Monday, October 2 till Wednesday, October 18 and donations may be dropped off at any of the participating businesses.  Checks can also be made to Custer County Foundation, specifying the “Food 4 Youth” fund.  Donations will be evenly distributed between the schools and programs.  For food donations, the schools have asked for items that can be easily prepared by children.  Examples include canned items (ravioli, soup, vegetables, fruit, etc.), boxed foods (macaroni, pasta, cereal, hamburger helper, jello, snack bars, pop-tarts, fruit snacks, etc.), and peanut butter.  Gift cards to our local grocery stores are incredibly appreciated, as they allow the program to shop for specific needs throughout the year.
