IN THE GARDEN
Our Giving Garden is a collaboration between Madison Elementary, Avanti High School, and the Thurston County Food Bank. This year we will be able to use the greenhouse from the Olympia High's GRuB Bear Program to grow LOTS of food for our cooking carts and farm stands. In addition, we are asking for lots of volunteer hours from our community. If you have the time and energy we could use your help with newsletter production, teacher-to-garden liaison, general garden maintenance and grant writing. We look forward to collaborating with you.
SAVE THE DATES:
To volunteer, have a current OSD volunteer form on file and call or email Joellen Wilhelm, Garden Coordinator **email@example.com or 360-464-4315**

FORKids Backpacks - Thurston County Food Bank Program
The Thurston County Food Bank created a weekend program called FORKids Backpacks, which provides a bag of kid friendly food for children to eat when not attending school. Students will receive the bags on the last day of school each week and discreetly place them into their backpacks to enjoy over the weekend. The program also includes bags for siblings if requested. If this program would be helpful to your family, you can fill out a form sent home with your child or ask at the school office for one.
