For World Teachers Day on Oct. 5, teachers at the Primrose School of West Plano donated 3,401 sandwiches to Feed the City.
Feed the City Plano is held on the first Saturday of every month at Ford’s Garage from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m.
“In America, over 46 million people live under the shadow of food insecurity. Hunger is a widespread issue all too often masked by pride, but its effects pervade all areas of life,” Feed the City’s website stated. “Prolonged micronutrient deficiency leads to a weakened immune system, stunted growth, reduced cognitive ability, chronic disease, and even death.”
Feed the City participants are asked to bring sliced bread, deli meat, sliced cheese, yellow mustard, chips, tangerines and sandwich bags for at least 25-30 people. Participants can also drop off made bags with a bottle of water, a granola bar, two tangerines or one apple in a Ziplock bag and a pouch of tuna or applesauce cup. The lunches are then donated to area nonprofits to be distributed as needed.
