Novak speaks to Wautoma Kiwanis

Jan Novak spoke to the Wautoma Kiwanis Club about the Vision 2020 Backpack Nutrition Program during their morning breakfast meeting at Culvers on Nov. 16.  During her presentation, Novak told the club that the Vision 2020 Backpack Nutrition Program started in May 2011 with 26 elementary students in Waushara County and has grown to 151 elementary students this school year. Each Friday of the 33 school weeks students that qualify receive a bag of food along with a coupon for free fresh food inside their backpacks when the halls are empty so their privacy is respected. Applications are available at the elementary school office for families who think they might qualify.
