Bring the entire family out for this community concert that kicks off the Nevada Day/Halloween weekend of events.

CACH

A healthy start promotes a healthy future. This was the goal of the Committee Against Child Hunger (CACH). Now in it's fifth year, this community group was formed to provide nutritious “back pack” food  supplements to White Pine County students for the  weekends, giving them a healthy start. 

Each week backpacks containing 3 days worth of meals and snacks are distributed to McGill Elementary, David E. Norman Elementary, Lund and Steptoe Valley High School. 2 day packs are distributed to the Learning Bridge and Little People's Head Start, a local pre-school.

The backpacks have non-perishable, nutritious food easily prepared by children. These items are to supplement food prepared in the home. School personnel recognize that students do better in school when their bodies are fueled with nutritious food.

This program would not be possible without the generous support of members of our community, White Pine County Social Services, Catholic Charities and our many volunteers.
