The Buff Don’t Puff

Bob and Cindy Wakefield, Brigham Young University representatives, brought their “Buff Don’t Puff” program to East Meadows Elementary. They, along with student athletes, gave a presentation on the dangers of smoking. Students learned that for many serving time in the Utah State Prison their first mistake was choosing to smoke. Smoking can often lead to drinking, drinking leads to drugs, drugs lead to crime, and crime leads to prison. East Meadows wishes to thank the Wakefields for bringing this program to elementary schools.

The East Meadows neighborhood was busy making bread last night. Students shared their bread with family, and members of the community. Many chose to bring their bread to school as a donation. The Provo Food and Care Coalition will receive more than 80 loaves of fresh homemade bread as a result of their efforts. That amount equates to more than 100 pounds of bread and is worth about $190! East Meadows thanks King Arthur Flour for donating the flour and teaching life skills to students.
