CDA Tribe donates $35,000 to Post Falls weekend student food program

The Coeur d’Alene Tribe will donate $35,000 to the Post Falls Food Bank Weekend Nutrition Backpack Program, which aids  Post Falls students who don't have reliable access to good food on weekends.  

“Hearing about kids who go without food all weekend really tugs at your heart, so when we heard about this program, we just had to help. We want our donation to ensure that the food bank can continue to feed the kids who have already been identified for this year’s program and that the program will be financially able to feed even more children if the schools uncover a greater need,” said Tribal Chairman Chief Allan, in a press release.
 
The program will allot supplemental food items to students in the Post Falls School District to reduce weekend hunger and provide additional nutritional assistance, according to the handout.
