Jackson St Cook Off with Sanford Squares

Saturday, August 1st 2015 - 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

For Immediate Release

Jackson St Cook-off with Sanford Squares

Sioux City, IA | July 23, 2015 The 9 churches on Jackson St have been challenged to a cook off fund and consciousness raising event August 1 to be held on the playground of Hunt School at 19th and Jackson starting at 11am. An event partnership that brings people of different racial, ethnic, class, linguistic and cultural backgrounds together to engage in relationship building, racism awareness and elimination; learning, advocacy, and mission.

Iglesia La Biblia Abierta; Trinity Lutheran Church; Sioux City Hispanic Seventh-Day Adventist Group; Cuidad Christiana; First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ); The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship; Iglesia Restauracion Canaan; St. John Lutheran Church; Blessed Sacrament Church each received a red oven glove on Pentecost Sunday with the challenge details. They could choose whatever items they wish to prepare, price tastes appropriately and all proceeds will go for gang prevention programming at the Sanford Center.

Sanford Center lost funding from Woodbury County earlier this year. Sensing a ‘not in my back yard’ attitude from the neighborhoods along the street that culminates at the Sioux City Country Club, this event was created to bring together the diverse citizens of the Hunt School district and the parishioners of these fine institutions.

Concurrently, the students and staff have prepared True/False questions for a game of tic tac toe called ‘Sanford Squares’ and teams of 5 people can sign up to compete a la ‘Hollywood Squares.’ 4 members of each team will be either the corners or the ‘tweens’ with a celebrity center square TBA. This event will begin about 12 p.m. to allow last minute entries. Both events have pages on Facebook with further details. Sanford Center TicTacToe and Jackson St Cook Off Sioux City.

Details: Jackson St. Cook Off

What: Fundraising event for the Sandford Center Gang Prevention Program

Where: Hunt School Play Ground – 19th and Jackson

When: 11 a.m., Saturday, August 1st

About The Sanford Center:


Sanford Center Outreach Specialists work with caseloads of 25-30 youngsters and are based in the Sioux City Community Schools. Youngsters are referred by school staff, juvenile probation, school administration and social health teams.


The Alternative Suspension Program helps youngsters continue their education while placed on out of school suspension. Referrals are made by school administration only.


The After School Program provides a safe, positive place for elementary children after school. The Program features tutoring, homework assistance, game room activities, mentoring and a hot supper. The Summer Program is an eight week program for elementary children during the summer. It is designed to keep children busy all day with hands-on activities, field trips, educational classes, motivational speakers and physical activities.

The Sanford Center, constructed at 1700 Geneva Street, was dedicated on June 17, 1951. The plaque near the entrance of the building is inscribed:

“Given to the people of Sioux City by Stella and Arthur Sanford to further interracial understanding and better community living. The building was inspired by the ideals and work of Mary J. Treglia, administrator, and Elzona B. Trosper, director.”
