Sponsor a Child's School Meals During Westonka Foodies' Angel Fund Drive

November 7, 2019 — The annual Westonka Foodies Angel Fund Drive begins Monday, Nov. 11, and runs through Dec. 31, 2019. The Angel Fund is used to pay breakfast and lunch meal account charges for students who may otherwise go without meals during the school day. Every year, Westonka community members generously donate to the Angel Fund because they see the struggles some students go through due to financial and personal difficulties in their families.

"I wish I could report to you today that we have no students in such dire circumstances this year, but unfortunately the number is still very large," said Westonka Food and Nutrition Services Director Laura Metzger. "Over 350 students have been identified by the school as children who may not have enough to eat on a daily basis. Let’s work together to prevent these things from happening."

The goal of the Angel Fund this year is to raise $6,500 to provide fresh, healthy food for the children described above.

  • Sponsor a child for one week: $25 donation
  • Sponsor a child for one month: $100 donation
