TSR Injury Law Sponsors Elementary School for The Sheridan Story to Help Fight Child Hunger
Last spring, our firm sponsored Cedar Ridge Elementary School for The Sheridan Story program, which provides nourishing weekend meals to children and families who do not have reliable access to food.
Food is gathered, packed and delivered to schools each week. Volunteers distribute the food discreetly at the end of the week by placing it in their backpacks while the children are not in the halls.
Approximately four to five pounds of food is provided directly to the children. The program distributes approximately 23,000 meals to children in the community every week.
The organization is committed to only using high-quality food to retain dignity for children and their families. They consulted dieticians and nutritionists from Allina Health and Saint Paul Public Schools to select healthy food. They purchase almost all their food from reputable food banks, wholesalers and manufacturers.
The risk of hunger in our community is very real, as more than 200,000 children in the state live with food insecurity. The Sheridan Story and its partners have sponsored 245 schools.
We are proud to sponsor a program that is making a difference in our community.
