Thursday evening seven members of Compassion Club packed food items for the next two weekends for 56 elementary children in Kalona and Wellman. In Washington County alone 1,050 kids are food insecure – meaning they don’t know where their next meal is coming from. The Mid-Prairie community has responded to this local need with a summer lunch program and Operation Backpack for the school year. Compassion Club is one group of the many local churches, community and other groups who help pack food each week.
