Food 4 Kids Program Thanks Hayward Schools for Donations

Hayward Community Food Shelf Press Release

The Food 4 Kids Program of the Hayward Community Food Shelf would like to thank the students, teachers and parents of the Hayward Primary and Middle Schools for providing non-perishable food items to the food shelf.  During November and December almost 1800 lbs of food was donated. This year’s donations exceeded last year’s donations. In addition to the food donations, the 4th graders at the Hayward Intermediate School recently made a monetary donation to the Food 4 Kids program. This generosity is an important addition to the food items provided to area families who may be food-challenged.


The Food 4 Kids School Year Program provides food to school age children during the weekend when school breakfasts and lunches are not available.  Students at the Hayward public schools, LCO schools, St. Francis Mission School and Northern Lights Christian Academy are eligible to participate.  There is no cost to the parent or student.


F4K is part of the Hayward Community Food Shelf’s (HCFS) program of providing food assistance to those in need.  This program is in addition to the general program offered each month to families.  Like all HCFS programs, this program is funded totally through donations and operated totally by volunteers. 

Questions about the program may be directed to the Hayward Community Food Shelf at 715-634-4237 (hcfs) or

Donations to help defray the cost of the program may be sent to the Hayward Community Food Shelf at PO Box 779, Hayward, WI 54843 or by credit card through the website (
