Local groups support Ponoka Elementary School’s meal program

Every school day, Ponoka Elementary School (PES) provides about 180 hungry students with something to eat for breakfast.

The school also offers lunch to students who either don’t have one, forgot theirs at home, or are just still hungry after eating what food they had.

The program is open to all students and no registration is required.

With winter approaching, the school is anticipating that need to grow.

The Ponoka Legion Branch No. 66 donated $200 to PES’s breakfast and lunch program on Oct. 27.

Other donations recently received include $1,000 from the Ponoka Lions Club, $500 from Adams Chevrolet Buick GMC, $500 from Thirsk Automotive Distributors and $250 from David and Sharlene Hyink.
