Crockett Elementary School honors veterans

Crockett Elementary students honored the Veterans of our community on Thursday, Nov. 10.  The moving ceremony included local Boy Scouts, the San Marcos High School Drum Line and the SMHS Air Force ROTC, as well as the Crockett choir and drum club.  Each veteran was presented with a package of greeting cards that were designed by students in our school and a flag pin to thank them for their service.

Food Bank provides 3,000 meal boxes

One in seven Hays County residents is food insecure, meaning they may not know where there next meal will come from. Hays County Food Bank provides food all year long, but they choose to offer something a little special during the holiday season.

This year, for its 10th Turkeys Tackling Hunger, the food bank put together 3,000 holiday meal boxes at Night Hawk Frozen Foods in Buda. Night Hawk owners Scott and Leanne Logan were as happy to help feed people in need as they always are. They even jumped behind the assembly line to help construct the meal boxes.

Don’t let your food go to waste this holiday season

Thanksgiving is the holiday that reminds all of as eaters to be grateful, especially for the season’s bounty provided by farmers, farm laborers, chefs and food service workers. But, unfortunately, we also waste an astonishing amount of food. 

Each year, consumers purchase over 700 million pounds of turkey, according to the National Turkey Federation. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) projects that 35 percent of the meat purchased does not get eaten—ending up in landfills, along with sweet potatoes, green beans, pumpkin pie and other holiday fare.
