ELK CITY -- Be sure to thank the following businesses for their participation and effort to provide the school students with nutritious lunches. The kids have lunch at the following locations: the VFW ladies Auxiliary prepares the lunch on Mondays; Tuesdays they have lunch at the school provided by Elk Creek Station; Wednesdays is lunch at the Elk Summit Café; Thursdays is lunch at the school provided by the Elk City General Store. All of the above businesses donate a portion of the cost to the school lunch program with the Idaho Community Foundation providing funding for the balance. The VFW Auxiliary provides 100 percent of their contribution as a community service. Thanks also go to Heather Kestner for organizing the businesses involved as well as setting the schedule. Apparently, the children learn how to put together a nutritious menu and call the order in to the businesses. Great learning opportunity!
