North Hall senior gathering food for families during summer
North Hall High School rising senior Katie Dionne is busy organizing a summer feeding program called “Sow More, Grow More.” Because of her hard work, she was recognized by the U.S. House with a resolution commending her for being named a distinguished finalist in the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards.
While farmers, gardeners and growers typically spend the summer with plenty of crops, many children find themselves without enough food during the summer months. Katie Rose Dionne, a rising North Hall High School senior, decided a year ago to help her hungry classmates in the summer. “I was at my school cafeteria, and many times on Fridays the cafeteria ladies will leave out extra foods they have,” Dionne said.
