Caesar Rodney School District Child Nutrition Specialist Darla Koff and the child nutrition staff at Nellie Stokes Elementary purchased $220 in Walmart gift cards to help out fellow child nutrition professionals in California who lost their homes in the Camp Fire.

In a members-only page on Facebook named “School Nutrition Professionals,” there was a post that stated, “…32 of the 38 student nutrition employees in Paradise, California have lost their homes in the Camp Fire and many left with only the clothes on their back.”

After learning of this, the teachers and staff went into their own pockets to help.
