Local News

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.

The Kiwanis Club of Grand Junction is collecting food for the Kids Aid Backpack Program to help feed students in need on weekends.

More than half of all students in District 51 qualify for the Kids Aid Program, and people can donate food at four grocery stores in the area including: City Market on Aspen Street in Fruita, City Market at Patterson and 12th Road, City Market at Patterson and 24th Road, and Safeway at Horizon Drive and 12th Street.

Every week during the school year Kids Aid provides bags full of food to feed up to 2,000 hungry students.

Non-perishable items are requested including Ramen noodles, granola bars, or mac and cheese.

Kiwanis Club members are happy to donate their time to help kids, and students are happy to help their peers fill their bellies, so they can better fill their minds with knowledge.
