Nisswa Student Council members learned Thursday, March 28, that the 1,000 food items the elementary school student body collected in March will help babies up to grandparents who use the Lakes Area Food Shelf.
Don Messick of the food shelf visited with student council members and learned how they collected so many food items, plus $103.
School staff member Ilda Johnson set the 1,000 food item goal. With her help, the student council passed out 275 brown paper bags donated by Schaefer’s Foods to students to remind them to bring food items to school.
