Letter to the Editor:

Feeding kids is an everyday responsibility for parents of every economic stratum. But when your family is economically challenged, as so many are today, that responsibility becomes an even bigger challenge.

Feed Our Rural Kids (FORK) was created to provide nutritional support to children from food insecure homes. Today, world-wide inflation makes our commitment to provide that nutritional support more expensive than ever.

Throughout the month of August, all Eagle River financial institutions are standing with FORK to help us raise $25,000, or a quarter of our annual budget.

If you can help, we need your help. Drop off a donation of any size at any one of those local financial institutions. Your contribution will make a difference in the lives of the children right here in the North Woods.

Donations can also be made at feedourruralkids.org.

Thank you for your interest.

Perry Pokrandt

President of FORK
