Shared Blessings To Provide Thanksgiving Feast
Shared Blessings is a local community group that provides Thanksgiving meals to those in need in our area. Founded in 2013, the group initially aimed to feed students from North County who would not have a warm meal for several days due to the Thanksgiving break. In its first year, Shared Blessings served about 500 meals.
Over the years, the group has expanded its reach to include anyone who needs or wants a meal on Thanksgiving, Friday, and Saturday. Shared Blessings now serves seniors, struggling families, and others in need.
The COVID-19 pandemic forced Shared Blessings to adapt its operations, but the group has emerged stronger than ever. Today, Shared Blessings divides its meal preparation into several kitchens, with most of the food being cooked and donated by volunteers. The group then plates up the meals and delivers them to those who have requested them.
Shared Blessings relies on hundreds of volunteers, thousands of man-hours, and donations of food and funds to make its Thanksgiving meal program a success. Last year, the group served about 5,000 meals over the three days, and it anticipates serving even more this year.
If you or your family is in need of a Thanksgiving meal, please complete the form below.
Lead Testing at Farmington R-7 Schools
In 2022, Missouri Legislation took a step forward in an additional effort to further reduce lead exposure in children by passing the Get the Lead out of School Drinking Water Act (RSMo 160.077) which sets standards for lead concentrations in school drinking water. This Act requires schools to conduct inventory, sampling, remediation, and monitoring at all potable drinking water outlets used or potentially be used for drinking, food preparation, and cooking or cleaning utensils.
The timeline below provides information on the efforts of Farmington R-7 to protect students from lead in drinking water at our schools.
