Committee Against Child Hunger (CACH)

Steptoe Valley students help out!

Volunteer students help pack one months worth of back packs inside the Episcopal Church, the backpacks are then distributed to the various schools. Teachers and school counselors then pass off the backpacks to the students who have been identified by the school as needing the assistance. Though it adds an extra step, having the schools be responsible for the giving out of the backpacks it adds a layer of privacy to ensure those that are helping never know who is going to receive the backpack. Committee Against Child Hunger (CACH), an organization formed in 2012 to help get students fed during their time away from school through food donations. The money to pay for the food comes strictly from fundraising events, such as the CACH dinner, which happens once a year at the Renaissance Village and raises money through silent auctions.
