Rural students in Southwest Washington will be eating more locally-grown food for the 2022-2023 school year. That's because Raymond School District, Hoquiam School District, Aberdeen School District, and Pe Ell School District were all awarded Washington Department of Agriculture (WSDA) Farm to School Grants.
The WSDA's Farm to School Program funds school districts in Washington state to buy local food, educate students about agriculture, and more. 'Our goal is to support expanding economic opportunities for farmers while educating students about the connections between food, farming, health, and the environment,' WSDA's Farm to School Program website reads.
The School District staff are eager to feed kids in remote schools, healthy, local food. School Districts off the I-5 corridor are plagued with supply chain issues, and these funds help strengthen their food offerings.
"The Aberdeen School District is thrilled that the WSDA has once again provided the opportunity to serve our students food from local farms again this year," Jaime Matisons Food Service Director at Aberdeen School District Food Service Department said. "The Southwest Washington Food Hub helps us source locally grown meat, dairy, eggs,veggies, and fruit from Washington state farms."
It seems like just yesterday that Harold Sorensen turned 95, now he is turning 100 years old and a celebration is underway. Please join the family on Saturday, December 3 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Toledo Senior Center located at 150 Coal Street in Toledo. Turning 100 years old is an accomplishment, but more importantly, Harold has been a patriarch for the entire family, not just his immediate family.
SOUTH BEND - Pacific County Commissioner Frank Wolfe has been forced to resign his position as commissioner effective December 31 because of Lyme disease. Wolfe, who was re-elected in 2020, has two years remaining on his term.
According to the AMA, Lyme disease is an illness caused by borrelia bacteria. Humans usually get Lyme disease from the bite of a tick carrying the bacteria. The disease causes a rash, often in a bull's-eye pattern, and flu-like symptoms. Joint pain and weakness in the limbs also can occur. Most people with Lyme disease recover completely with appropriate antibiotic treatment.
Mackenzie Kuiken, a student from South Bend, was crowned Sunday, November 13 as Miss Washington Teen USA.
