Natchitoches Parish 4-H’er donates meals to NSU Food Pantry

Katie Anderson, a Natchitoches Parish 4-H member, and a member of the Louisiana 4-H Food and Fitness Board, donated 57 healthful meals to the Northwestern State University Food Pantry. Last February, she attended the national 4-H Healthy Living Summit, where she co-wrote a grant to help feed local students who are in a “food desert.” Since Covid-19 halted her plans for school-age children, she has used the resources to help where she can. Katie has donated more than 150 meals to parish students in need.

“Natchitoches 4-H is so proud of Katie and her efforts,” said Natchitoches Parish 4-H Agent Pam Pearce. “She has made a tremendous difference and has impacted many lives during her 4-H career!”
