iFeed is a one-day event where High School Interact clubs and community volunteers will work toward alleviating hunger in the world and in our own communities.
HOW will iFeed do this?
Is TWO PARTS:
PART 1 of the event is to pack over 100,000 highly nutritious, vitamin-fortified soy-rice meals that will be shipped to Nicaragua (with the help of the organization called Kids Against Hunger). This will involve over 36 teams (432 volunteers) packing for about 4 hours total.
PART 2 is a MEGA food drive spanning the Coulee Region and beyond. Interact needs the community to join in and be a part of iFeed in Part 2.
WHO is putting on iFeed?
Seven La Crosse Area Interact Clubs – including Aquinas, Caledonia, Central, Holmen, Logan, Onalaska and West Salem High Schools. What is Interact? It’s Rotary for high schoolers. It’s mission is the same as Rotary: SERVICE ABOVE SELF.
WHEN and WHERE is iFeed?
iFeed 2019 is on Saturday, November 2, 2019 and will be held at Logan High School from 8am to Noon.
Why should people get involved in iFeed?
Because the need is so great. Hunger is a real issue—in foreign countries AND in our own back yards. The 100,000+ meals will be shipped to Nicaragua. Children would go without food if it weren’t for the food packs sent by organizations such as Kids Against Hunger. These meals are prepared in schools so the children are fed, and also receive a basic education. Locally, the need for food is a constant challenge. Non-perishable food items collected during iFeed will be donated to the Hunger Task Force (the tri-state area’s major food pantry supplier) and other community pantries who are participating in iFeed outside of the La Crosse area. iFeed truly will benefit every area food pantry.
