Helping Hands Ending Hunger Program
Sumter County Schools sent a group to preview the Helping Hands Ending Hunger Program in action at three Doughty County Schools on May 13th. The Helping Hands Ending Hunger program is a program for schools that empowers students to rescue uneaten food from school cafeterias and joins hands with their communities to alleviate childhood food insecurity, reduce food waste, encourage education equity and shape a healthier world. Representatives from Sumter County Primary School and Sumter County Intermediate School along with School Nutrition employees were able to see the program in action and are in the planning stages of starting the program next school year here in Sumter County.
