CASPER, Wyo. — Members of the Kiwanis Club of Casper were joined by friends and family Thursday to bag hundreds of pancake meals for area schoolchildren.
“When COVID hit, we had to cancel two of our annual Pancake Breakfast fundraisers. We wanted to still do something for the community,” said Linda Miller, the club’s assistant secretary. “We came up with our Homemade Pancake Breakfast bags through the Food for Thought Project.
“The bags contain everything needed to make a pancake breakfast at home for the families that get Food for Thought bags through the school district. We provide all the ingredients.”
Altogether, the Kiwanis Club and its helpers bagged about 900 pancake meals that included pancake mix, dry milk, syrup, applesauce and Sunny D.
The Wyoming Food for Thought Project is a local nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting childhood hunger within the community. The Food for Thought food bag program runs year-round and provides children with meals every day they are out of school.
The Kiwanis Club of Casper, a community service club, meets at noon on Thursdays at the Best Western, 123 West E St.
