Food-2-Schools is a local program designed to provide dozens of students of all ages with some extra food to keep at home. The Lake Chelan Food Bank, Thrive Chelan Valley, local churches and Chelan and Manson school districts are all working together in order to offer this opportunity to our valley’s children. We are collecting kid friendly food to send home with families that apply for the program.
