Take-Home Meals from John Deere Dubuque Works

Available at Prescott School on April 10, 2018

John Deere Dubuque Works will be at Prescott School on April 10 to distribute meal boxes to school families at 3:30pm, our regular dismissal time. Any school family is invited to participate. When you arrive, look for the St. Stephen’s Food Bank truck, which will be located on our playground.

The program is supported by a $10,000 Serving Our Communities Grant received by John Deere Dubuque Works from the John Deere Foundation. The grant focuses on the work John Deere Dubuque Works has done with St. Stephen’s Food Bank.

Food for the meal packs was purchased from St. Stephen’s and boxed by John Deere Dubuque Works employees. The boxes will be delivered by John Deere and St. Stephen’s staff and will be distributed to those in need.
