All terrain vehicle riders in Northumberland County are showing “generous” support for food programs in the area schools.
Northumberland ATV Riders came through with $2,000 from their latest fundraising ride.
This brings the club’s total donation close to $20,000 over the past few years.
Community Development coordinator for Northumberland Food For Thought, Beth Kolisnyk, commends what she calls the “ongoing generosity to help ensure students have the food they need to excel in school.”
President of the Northumberland District ATV Riders Club Mike Ainsworth says the club members “appreciate what Food for Thought does in coordinating school programs that support student nutrition and learning.”
In Northumberland, student nutrition programs consist of a full sit-down breakfast before school starts, a grab-and-go program, and one where snack bins are delivered to each classroom.
These programs are free and voluntary, providing food to thousands of students in the area every day.
