Hot chili warmed up Kewaunee residents Saturday and provided the kick start to a new pilot program that is being organized by the Kewaunee Optimist Club and the Rotary. It will last for ten weeks this spring and the aim is for the program to become permanent once school returns in the fall. The program helps to address changes in federal assistance guidelines according to Optimist Board Member Jim Lemack.
The “Feed Our Kids” program will be run in conjunction with local school districts. The Kewaunee Optimist Club is a local chapter of Optimist International and its mission is to provide support to youth programs in the area.
