SPENCER, Iowa (KCAU) — Seasons Center for Behavioral Health will be giving away 250 holiday food baskets to residents in need in four Siouxland counties.
The baskets will include traditional holiday classics such as canned vegetables, gravy, instant potatoes, and stuffing, and a $20 gift card for fresh meat and produce at a local grocery store.
Each of the baskets will also have kid-friendly foods like bread, fruit snacks, granola bars, mac & cheese, peanut butter, jelly, crackers, and soup.
The holiday food baskets are funded by the Northwest Iowa Care Connections and County Social Services Mental Health & Disability Services Regions through CARES funding.
“We are grateful for the funding from the Northwest Iowa Care Connections and County Social Services Mental Health & Disability Services Regions. We are thrilled to have the ability to provide food to the residents of Clay, Emmet, Palo Alto, and Osceola counties! We know this year has been difficult for many. We want to ensure that the families in our community are able to have enjoyable holiday meals, as well as extra food for their children who will be home from school this month,” said Kim Scorza, CEO/President of Seasons Center.
