CalFresh is a program that assists families and individuals obtain additional support for fresh and healthy food. A surprising amount of people are eligible to take part in this program and would get money monthly for food in order to support themselves and/or their families. This is beneficial because it gives people the opportunity to buy more nutritious foods for their home. Please contact the CalFresh Outreach team at the Center for Nutrition and Activity Promotion for more information and to apply at (530)345-9749 or CalFreshHelp530@gmail.com.

We Don't Want to Alarm You...
We will be having an important fire drill this month which will involve the Colusa Fire Department. It will be a drill for us and for the fire department as well to make sure that we are prepared in the event of an actual emergency. The fire department will be responding with their equipment as if they were on call. Please don’t be alarmed if you see them in action. Thank you, also, to the Colusa Fire Department for providing presentations on safety for our students and for their gift of a backpack for every 4-6th grade student. We appreciate you!
