Vets Hall student feeding initiative opens hunger conversation

"The vets have stepped up with perfect timing to support hungry students," Carr said. "The vets' program will benefit the students in Arcata. That leaves two high schools in McKinleyville. McKinleyville High is in the process of developing a food pantry which I'll support as best I can. Clearly, the current school district food program is not meeting the needs of the hungry students.

There are hungry kids now!"

McKinley statue project alternatives scoped for EIR

Kevin L.
