An article from TuftsNow, points out “Empty shelves lining supermarkets, farmers dumping milk and abandoning fields of crops, restaurants laying off staff—the American food landscape has changed dramatically in just a month, thanks to stay-at-home advisories and social distancing in the age of COVID-19.” This and many other challenges families face when feeding their children during this time, including kids who rely on breakfast and lunch via school lunch programs, has added even more stress to families across Wisconsin and throughout the US.
LIVEfor…has always been about fostering trust and support in kids to give them the freedom to go confidently in the direction of their dreams. Yet, when faced with a new challenge of how to get food on the table, big dreams can be pushed aside. Now, more than ever, we feel the urge to continue to help inspire kids across the state of Wisconsin by focusing in their physical well being. We are partnering with the Wisconsin Podcast Association and Two Girls & a Farm LLC to raise money to support the kids and families who have been at the heart of our mission, by providing nutritious farm to table meals to their door step.
Two Girls & a Farm has a mission to connect people with nature through food and we couldn’t be more excited to join forces. With the help of them and the WPA, we will be able to connect with people, families, and kids across the state of WI and continue to focus on our three core values: the physical, mental, and social well being of children in need.
