Anthony Freeman, a plant manager with 
Hormel Foods, presented a check for $5,000 to School District 197 to help the district erase school lunch debt. Jeff Wolfer and Kelly Wegener from the district's Child Nutrition Department were on hand to accept the donation and thank Freeman and Hormel for their generosity. Hormel is making these generous donations in the school districts in which the company has plants. The donation will be used by the school district to offset overall negative account balances, which ultimately leads to more money that can be directed to student learning.
