Summer Lunch Program for Students ~ Ag Run Off ~ Aspen Leaf Out ~ Helping Orphan Girls

Apr 29, 2019

Monday, April 29 – The Hunger Free North Dakota Coalition is celebrating 10 years of helping people. In observance of that anniversary, each month we’re highlighting one of the coalition’s efforts. Today we discuss the summer food service program, which provides lunches during the summer when school is out. Joining us is Linda Schloer, director of child nutrition programs at the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction. ~~~  A new study shows forests are really good at filtering contaminants out of water, but they’re not catching everything. Harvest Public Media’s Jonathan Ahl reports that an agriculture-related pollutant is getting through, and climate change is making it worse. ~~~ In this week’s Natural North Dakota, Chuck Lura celebrates more signs of spring with his essay, Aspen Leaf Out. ~~~  ~~~ African Soul American Heart, a non-profit that protects and educates orphan girls from South Sudan. Founding Director Deb Dawson and Jessica Wunderlich join us to talk about an upcoming screening of the documentary African Sojourn, a 90-minute documentary that tells ASAH’s story.
