Grow It Know It With the Assist to Meals in the Middle

Recently, the Grow It Know It (GIKI) AmeriCorps VISTA service members assisted students, teachers, and staff of the Clarke County School District (CCSD) in organizing the Meals in the Middle fundraiser dinner. The meal, held Thursday, November 8, raised $770 for the UPENDO-One Kid at a Time organization. Due to the organizing efforts of the GIKI service members, 31 community members attended this meal and four CCSD teachers and over 100 CCSD students prepared and served the meal. Thanks everyone!
