More and more Children go hungry in the summertime. Whenever I hear stories about pets and children, I automatically put my pet and child into the story. Now it's a family thing, and I think I could be in that group very fast. Families are lining up to do a night time shop in the food shelves. The challenge has become bigger for all food shelves but especially for CHUM.
Chum is asking people to add a little more when you visit the grocery store this weekend when you are buying for your family's needs. The annual Share Food Drive is taking place October 4th with the Boy Scouts and others volunteering to help collect food for families around the area.
CHUM is looking for your help again this year to fill backpacks with school supplies for kids. The thinking is, when kids have the supplies and are ready for school without the stress it puts on parents and familes that can't afford it, the kids are more open to learning. They feel a pride in themselves.
CHUM invites you to help out food shelf programs by "Scouting For Food" this Saturday. The SHARE Food Drive takes place from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at area grocery stores. It's a great way to help out people in your community that need it. Scouts will hand shoppers a list of items most needed by food shelves then you can purchase them and leave them with a volunteer on your way out of the store.
All children are welcome to participate in this year’s Children’s Rhubarb Run the morning of Saturday, June 28. A variety of other children’s activities will take place throughout the festival, which lasts from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Leif Erickson Park. This year will honor Steve O'Neil.
Steve O'Neil spent his life in Duluth working for Duluth's most vulnerable families. His legacy will continue, as the new apartments and emergency shelter bearing his name. They will not only help those families, but will also help fulfill Duluth's vision of becoming a city that welcomes the stranger, feeds the hungry, and houses the homeless.
Larry Long and his American Roots Revue will bring their inspiring blend of gospel, reggae, Cajun, swing, folk, R&B and rock to this year’s stage show at the 10th Annual CHUM Rhubarb Festival on Saturday, June 28.
More and more people in the Northland are finding that their check isn't going as far as it used to, and are having to lean on food shelves. Based on third quarter statistics, CHUM’s Emergency Food Shelf has seen an increase of 327 families seeking emergency food as compared to the same time period in 2012. During that same time CHUM has had a 48% decrease in cash donations to the Food Shelf.
It's getting to that time of the season when people forget about food shelves and this is the time of year there is the most need. It starts to get colder and there are many families on the line of deciding between food or heat or healthcare.
One of the great things about living in the northland is the abundance of rhubarb that grows wild; You'll find it in people's backyards, alongside the road in ditches, and Saturday - you'll find it in the spotlight at the 9th annual CHUM Rhubarb Festival!
