Feeding Eudora: Eudora Schools Foundation meeting the needs of our community

Posted Wednesday July 8, 2020

The Eudora Schools Foundation received $5,000 from the Douglas County Community Foundation to help provide meals for students starting July 1st until school resumes in August. The Eudora School District has provided extended food service to students through the end of June and has worked to transition food services to the Feeding Eudora program for the remainder of the summer. 

"We are beyond grateful for the support from the Douglas County Community Foundation to help us feed our Eudora kids all summer," said Shanda Hurla, executive director of the Eudora Schools Foundation. "The assurance of knowing that our students are getting at least two meals a day, in addition to once a week, having the opportunity to take home fresh produce from area farms is a huge positive for our families that are managing and navigating all the stresses during this unprecedented time." 

"Feeding Eudora's success this summer wouldn't be possible without all the local collaboration and the bigger support from several local and state Foundations. In addition, there are countless volunteers that work hard to provide meals for our students. We are so appreciative." said Hurla.
