The Moorhead Legacy Education Foundation announced their gift of $50,000 to Moorhead Schools at their 4th Annual SpudTacular Gala. The gift was made possible by a $10,000 grant from Alex Stern Family Foundation, a $3,000 grant from West Central Initiative's Resiliency Fund, a $4,500 Agri Farm to School grant funded through FM Area Foundation, and generous donors. Monies help fund Food For Thought, a program of MLEF, which provides milk and snack to students in need of assistance. To date, the Legacy Foundation has distributed over $80,000 to Moorhead Area Public Schools for Food For Thought.
MLEF announces their partnership with the FM Area Foundation's Caring Catalog. The Caring Catalog goes live on November 24th - December 14th. There will be special incentive games and contests each week on social media to help participating organizations win bonus prizes toward goals of up to $10,000.
Donations will go toward Food For Thought, a program of MLEF, to help students reach their full potential with access to proper nutrition and help them learn with equity.

Moorhead Legacy Education Foundation was awarded a prestigious $5,000 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.
The Alex Stern Family Foundation historically provided grants giving much-needed operational funds for MLEF. The original 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.
With the help of grants and generous donors, MLEF has been able to provide over $80,000 to Moorhead Area Public Schools' food and nutrition services to support elementary milk and snack break at the district’s elementary schools.
