As part of the companies Full Belly! Full Mind! program, a cheque for $3,000 was presented to Hunger in Moose Jaw.  They will use the money to help fund the dairy program which is part of the program that reaches out to 15 schools in Moose Jaw.  

"Hunger in Moose Jaw currently provides an average of 350 lunches every day, usually consisting of a sandwich, piece of fruit, and a snack, with milk or yogurt added when funds are available" said Sharla Sept the executive director of Hunger in Moose Jaw.  "This donation will ensure that children regularly get dairy included in their lunch and the nutrition that comes with it".

Cory Ells is a DuPont Pioneer account manager.  He said, "A well balanced health diet is important to learning and development.  We are please to support Hunger in Moose Jaw's efforts to provide nutritious lunches to children".
