We were taken aback while reading reporter Karen Butterfield’s story about a local food program in the Weekend Missourian. Do we have that many families that need gifts of food to survive in this area? Apparently, the need is there.

The story related that more than 4,000 backpacks with weekend meals have been sent home with students in the Washington School District this year through an organization called the Community Partners: Fighting Hunger and Fueling Minds. Now the program is being extended to the summer months. The partners include the Franklin County Area United Way, a number of churches and others.
