For many years, Bread & Broth 4 Kids has sponsored a bi-annual Cram-A-Cruiser event to supplement the food that is purchased for the B&B 4 Kids weekend food program.  This Fall, with the event close to Halloween, a local community member has donated the use of a hearse to hold all food donations, hoping the community will “cram” the vehicle with nutritious, kid friendly food items.Bread & Broth’s Cram-A-Hearse  will be held on  Saturday, October 29th  from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the parking lot in front of Grocery Outlet, 2358 Lake Tahoe Blvd. in South Lake Tahoe.   Food items from the B&B 4 Kids wish list or monetary donations will be accepted.  Volunteers will be dressed in Halloween costumes and Halloween treats will be provided for children joining in on the fun.

All donated food and donations will be used to support the B&B 4 Kids’ program.   This program provides weekend food bags for children at all K-8 schools in the Lake Tahoe Unified School District.  These bags contain 7 single serving, nutritious meals (2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 3 dinners) along with fresh fruit, protein bars, and healthy snacks to supplement weekend nutrition.

Please join Bread & Broth on October 29th in their efforts to feed  the food insecure children of South Lake Tahoe. For more information, please visit Bread and Broth.
