Page 8 Free Press Helparrivesfor hungry children, families By BECKY THOMAS StaffReporter Children in Cheney Middle School's afterschool program will have to find a new excuse. Now they can't say they're too tired to participate in activities. They'll be provided with sub- stantial, nutritious snacks from the new Kids' Cafe. Cheney Middle School has partnered with Second Harvest Inland Northwest and Communi- ties in Schools of Spokane County to provide the free afterschool snacks, as well as sandwiches that kids can take home. It's part of an effort to keep kids healthy and well-fed in the school district. Kids' Cafe is tle third program of its kind in Washington and the first to reside in a school. The cafe was launched and will be open to kids who participate in CMS's afterschool program. Jason Clark, executive direc- tor of Second Harvest, was at the kickoff event. "It felt like a really easy fit," he said of bringing Kids' Cafe to Chenev. "I think this is a great setting." Clark said the Kid's Cafe is implemented in areas where more than half the participants come from low income homes. Ben Stuckart, executive direc- tor of Communities in Schools, was also in attendance at the kick- ' off. He said the need for healthy food has risen recently, and that Kids' Cafe was a great way to ad- dress the problem while increas- ing participation in aftersschool programs. He also said the program will help students in other areas of their school life. He said better nutrition will re- duce behavioral problems and help students focus in the classroom. Second Harvest also brought their mobile food bank to CMS Tuesday. Clark said the food bank couldn't run without local volunteers who meet the trucks at distribution sites. Residents lined up to receive potatoes, onions, strawberries and more on Tuesday.
