This summer, Downers Grove Grade School District 58, Woodridge School District 68 and Community High School District 99 will continue to partner together through the Wood-Grove Feeding Our Future Cooperative, an effort to ensure all children ages 0-18 in our communities can receive a breakfast and lunch six days per week.
