Sparkumentary: Summer Lunch Program Serves More Than Food


By Emma Stiefel

This summer Lakota’s Child Nutrition Department partnered with the Faith Alliance, Butler County Liaisons and Mission Possible Churches to provide meals paid for by the United States Department of Agriculture to children in need at seven sites throughout the district. Children that participated in the program, however, got more than lunch out of it; volunteers helped make sure they were cared for emotionally and mentally as well.

This video is divided into four sections:
Introduction to the program: 0:00
Literacy programs: 4:30
Impacting children: 5:54
Poverty in Lakota: 7:07
