Eureka’s Lost Coast Rotaract will be hosting the “Smash Out Hunger” Softball tournament to benefit Food for People’s Backpacks for Kids Program on Sunday June 26th at 10:00 am at Redwood Fields in Cutten. Come enjoy food, beer, and fun for the whole family while supporting a good cause. Registration is 20.00 per person, minimum 10 people per team. Get yourself signed up today by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
More than 50% of school children in Humboldt County are enrolled in the free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch programs when school is in session, but this food is not available on the weekends. The Backpacks for Kids program has been in operation since 2006 and provides a bag full of nutritious, kid-friendly food every Friday during the school year for local children living at risk for hunger. School teachers and administrators report that children who receive the weekend food packages no longer complain of hunger on Monday mornings and have fewer problems with attendance, concentration and behavior after participating in the Backpacks for Kids program.

On Wednesday evening approximately 100 Eureka residents ages 16-30 attended the Next Generation Eureka (NGE) Meeting, organized by our very own member Delo Freitas. After a presentation about the City of Eureka, those in attendance were given the opportunity to share their input on the city’s General Plan and their own ideas for the future of Eureka.
