Cave Junction mom sets up fundraiser to provide snacks for students at school

CAVE JUNCTION, Ore. — A group of parents are coming together to donate snacks for a school in Cave Junction after its snack program was canceled.

A mom of 2 students at Evergreen Elementary, Brittney Slack, set up a GoFundMe in order to fundraise for the cause.

She says she knew she needed to do something when she found out teachers were paying out of pocket to provide snacks to their students.

So far, she’s helped raise $750.

“I can’t tell you, especially in these grades, how many times a teacher is asked, you know, ‘is it lunchtime yet? we’re hungry.’ I know specifically, the teachers have asked for protein-filled snacks because it gives them that extra energy,” said Slack.

The Grocery Outlet in Cave Junction also recently donated a pallet of assorted foods to the Illinois Valley Gleaning Project which gives food back to the community, landowners, and food banks.
