    Foodland and Super Bear are working to provide Juneau students receiving free and reduced price lunches with food while they're on break, "What we're doing is putting together food bags that will provide them with breakfast and lunch for a week when they're off for winter break, spring break, and the first week of summer. We just want to help out and we saw a need and we'll take care of it that way."

    News of the North spoke with IGA Director of Operations Mark Graham, who says they were putting together 600 grocery bags last night, "The employees from Foodland and Super Bear are all getting together and we're putting together 600 grocery bags and it has things in it like cherrios, oatmeal, peanut butter and jelly, tuna fish, chicken noodle soup, ramen, granola bars, and things like that. Then myself and the two store managers of Foodland and Super Bear are going to deliver to the schools and drop it off."

    Graham says the bags of food go out today.
