Volunteers in Tampico provided lunches through the Feed The Children program during the summer months for local children. An average of 30 lunches per day were provided free of charge, three days a week.
Special thanks to the Tampico First United Methodist Church for
sponsoring Feed the Children in Tampico. Royal Neighbors from Prophetstown Chapter 516 and Thomas Chapter 1570 provided several volunteers to make the lunches.
The program is sponsored by United Way of Whiteside County which reported that 21,000 children were provided meals this summer.
