Stop by with a book and/or food donation for a family in need, then stick around for stories, snacks, and activities, including upcycled crafts, a sorting game about composting and recycling, and a lesson on planting an indoor garden by Jenni Mettemeyer from Farm to School.

Miss Jamie’s Farm will present a special interactive storytime about buying local, eating healthy, and the importance of farms in our community from 2 to 2:45 p.m. Hy-Vee Nutritionist Cathy Gehris will teach participants how to make healthy snacks from 3 to 3:30 p.m. and 3:30 to 4 p.m. Well Fed, Well Read will conclude with a screening of What’s on Your Plate?, an educational documentary about farming and the environment.
