Barb Food Mart Is Now Registering Families

For The 2018-2019 School Year.

If you are a NEW family, ask your school secretary to send in the BFM Verification Form. Then, bring your ID each week. Over the summer, you may also go go the Education Center (on South Fourth Street) to get a BFM Verification Form. If you were registered last year, you DO NOT need a new Verification Form. Just update your info at BFM.

Give DeKalb County is on May 2 this year. This is a great way to support Barb Food Mart — and many other worthy nonprofit organizations. You can donate online or stop by the DeKalb County Community Foundation, 475 DeKalb Avenue, Sycamore, throughout the day. Please help us reach our goal of $7,000!

Thanks to DeKalb 4C and the Regional Office of Education for visiting the Barb Food Mart on Thursday to share information on kindergarten readiness, toddler brain development, family enrichment programs, child care resources and financial assistance.

Coming in April: It’s time to think summer! On April 4 and 11 explore fun summer activities for the entire family.
