Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign

Share our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign presented two service grants to the Mena Middle School. Lauryn Maechler and Molly Schnell were selected as winners in the Generation No Kid Hungry #PoweredByBreakfast slogan contest. Thanks to generous support from Sodexo Foundation, with the oversight of Share our Strength, each student has been chosen to receive the grant to support a youth service learning project. Lauryn was awarded $250 for her slogan “You can do anything when you are “PoweredByBreakfast”and Molly was awarded $300 for her slogan “Power Up.Learn Up.” As their service learning project Lauryn and Molly have chosen to support the backpack program at Mena Middle School by using the funds to purchase fruit and healthy breakfast foods for the MMS backpack program in the Fall. Lauryn and Molly will lead the Mena Middle School FCCLA in making the food purchases and loading the backpacks. They want to insure that Mena Middle School students are #PoweredByBreakfast.
