Summer food program offers kids healthy meals over the school break

News

According to nokidhungry.org 1 in 6 children in the United States lives with hunger. This equates to more than 12 million children that live in “food insecure’ homes according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). That means those families don’t have enough food for every family member to lead a healthy life. This doesn’t mean that there is nothing to eat. But it can mean that children get smaller portions than they need, or they are not able to afford nutritious foods.

In our area there is a summer food program that allows kids (and some sites adults) to eat a healthy meal free of charge. Some sites started providing meals on July 1st. You can find out more about locations in our area by clicking on the links below.
