Raven Packs Provide Food to Elementary Students in Need

Ravenna School District staff, parent volunteers and community members are partnering to provide help to identified  elementary students who may not have quite enough food at home for long weekends.  For these students, hunger is a very real  issue.  On Wednesday, January 16th, 255 "Raven Packs" were put together containing items such as macaroni and cheese, soup, granola bars, oatmeal, crackers, chips, bananas, carrots, quinoa, sandwiches and apple juice.  The food was provided by the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank as well as individuals and groups who have donated funds and food to assist with the program.  Raven Packs will be distributed to students in advance of long weekends such as Martin Luther King Day, Presidents Day, Spring Break, Easter and Memorial Day weekends.  The Raven Pack Program is organized by Andrea Morgan and Aleah Dunaye, staff members at Willyard Elementary School and Laura Wunderle, a parent in the district.
