The Men's Community Lenten Breakfast at Saint Luke's Lutheran Church on March 22 offered generous support for the North Tama BackPack and Snacks Program. The group raised a total of $225.

Seed money for this event was from Thrivent Financial. Organizer, Steve Rash, contacted North Tama Schools regarding potential need and his group's willingness to support the BackPack and Snacks Programs at North Tama.

The BackPack Program, from the Northeast Iowa Food Bank, provides a bag of "kid friendly" food to students to help them through the weekend, when they may not have food as readily available. The donated snacks and money raised can be used to offer additional assistance to the students who receive BackPacks. In addition, students who need a healthy snack during the day can benefit from the items donated by this generous group. The money donated will be used to purchase additional healthy snacks for students.
