Support Empty Bowls project March 25

To the editor:

Did you know in Douglas County, 9.6 percent of individuals are living in poverty?

Did you know over the past five years, hunger has doubled in Minnesota and approximately 1 in 7 Minnesotans experience hunger?

Did you know about 13,100 individuals are homeless in Minnesota on any given night?

Did you know only 59 percent of Minnesota kindergartners are fully ready for kindergarten in the areas of language and literacy?

We want to help and prevent these problems from happening. We want to invite you to help and support our Empty Bowls project on March 25 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Jefferson High School.

Our goal is to create a change that will improve these numbers, to make this a better community. We can work together to make a better tomorrow.
