Below is a letter presented to us by AER's Karla Jutzi and written by Jim Baldwin, CEO of the Food Bank of Alaska, thanking Anchorage East Rotary for our cub's support:
 
You are helping ensure our kids in Alaska have the summer they have been looking forward to, free from anxiety about where their summer meals are coming from.  Thank you!
 
“You can tell the kids need this food,” says Brian, a monitor at one of Food Bank of Alaska’s rural summer meal program sites.  “No one is picking on each other when they’re eating.”  From Anchorage to Bethel, Kotzebue to Dillingham, your support is helping provide summer meals to kids in over 40 communities.  When kids have enough to eat in the summer, they have energy to burn.  You truly are putting smiles on their faces.  “When they eat here, they leave happier you know," says Brian.
 
If you’d like to speak with us, please call Development Director Karla Jutzi, 907-222-3112, or email kjutzi@foodbankofalaska.org.
