Cargill grant to assist Holy Savior with food and nutrition programs
WICHITA – Holy Savior Catholic Academy has received a $13,200 grant from the local Cargill Cares Council of Cargill, Inc., to assist with food programs at the school.
Holy Savior was one of several local organizations to receive a grant from the Cargill Cares Council this summer. The council, along with a match from Cargill, Inc., distributed grants totaling more than $175,000 to area nutrition and health programs.
Holy Savior Catholic Academy will use the funds to provide nutritional food during the academy’s after school program and for children to take home over weekends.
The grant greatly assists Holy Savior’s mission to serve its students, said Holy Savior Catholic Academy Principal Delia Shropshire.
“Before Jesus delivered the Sermon on the Mount, he first fed the people,” Shropshire said. “Cargill Cares is helping us to emulate the Master Teacher by providing nourishment for our students before teaching so that our students can fully embrace the knowledge of being taught without worrying about their basic needs being met.”
