BROKEN BOW–Adams Land and Cattle (ALCC) is proud and excited to organize its second annual Food 4 Youth Challenge. This year, Adams is partnering with local businesses and surrounding schools to assist with their backpack programs, which provide food and other needed items to send home with students.

The backpack program is a great asset to many students who may not know when their next meal will be. Students of Custer County need your support.

In addition to supporting the backpack programs, ALCC will also be working to fill the shelves of local food pantries.

Please help ensure that every Custer County student is avoiding hunger by assisting with this year’s Food 4 Youth Challenge.

“Last year, through the help of the community and 22 businesses and organizations, we were able to donate $7,091 and over 2,700 items to Custer County backpack programs, which provide food and other needed items to send home with students,” said Liz Babcock, Director of Communications at Adams. “We hope that we can surpass those numbers to help ensure our local youth have nutritious meals at the end of each day.”


The challenge will run from September 21 – October 5 and donations may be dropped off at any of the participating businesses.
