Fargo Schools Receives Money For Nearly 500 Cartons of Milk
FPS Development Foundation recently received support from City of Fargo and MinnKota
FARGO, N.D. — Two groups are helping the Fargo Public Schools Development Foundation provide milk for elementary students as a mid–morning snack.
MinnKota Recycling and the City of Fargo presented a check for more than $160 to the foundation’s “Got No Milk” campaign.
The money will provide the equivalent of 476 cartons of milk.
The foundation is seeking donations to make sure kids are properly nourished throughout the day as part of the “Got No Milk” campaign.
“It gives them that first point of nutrition, it helps them focus, it gives them the opportunity to participate with all the other kids that are having milk. Being hungry, you’re not really taking advantage of the great education Fargo Public Schools is offering,” said Becky Bakke, the Director of the Fargo Public Schools Development Foundation.
The students directly benefiting from the program are those who can’t afford to pay the semester fee for snacks in school.
