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 80,000 highly nutritious, vitamin-fortified soy-rice meals that will be shipped overseas to hungry kids. (with the help of the organization called Kids Against Hunger). This will involve over 30 teams (400 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 2023 is on Saturday, November 4, 2023 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 backyards. The 80,000+ meals will be shipped internationally to those who need food most. Children would go without food if it weren’t for the food packs sent by organizations such as Kids Against Hunger.
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 that are participating in iFeed outside of the La Crosse area. iFeed truly will benefit every area food pantry.
