The Moorhead Schools Legacy Foundation was awarded a prestigious $10,000 Alex Stern Family Foundation grant last month to support the foundation’s Food for Thought campaign, which provides milk and snack to students in need.
For the past two years, the Alex Stern Family Foundation provided grants giving much-needed operational funds for the Moorhead Schools Legacy Foundation. The grant funds allowed the Legacy Foundation to continue its work of making an impact in the Moorhead Schools community by enhancing the school district’s programs and facilities and creating an endowment for the future.
In 2018, more than 180 donors raised $13,900 for the Legacy Foundation’s Food for Thought campaign to provide students in need in Moorhead Area Public Schools with milk/snack and meals. In 2017, donors from the community made it possible for the Moorhead Schools Legacy Foundation to donate more than $9,500 to Moorhead Area Public Schools food and nutrition services to support elementary milk and snack break at the district’s elementary schools.
The Legacy Foundation held its second annual SpudTacular Gala in September 2018, and this fall awarded $5,000 in Spud Student Impact grants to teachers in the Moorhead Schools. The foundation is preparing for its third Giving Hearts Day in February 2019 in support of its Food for Thought campaign to support milk, snack and meals for students in need.
