Kids' Summer Club need you!
During the academic year, 8 out of 10 local school children have access to school-based meals through the Free and Reduced-Price Meal program, which often provides breakfast and snacks as well as daily lunch. During our scorching hot summers, when budgets are tightest and school is out, less than 1 in 10 local kids have access to school-based meals.
To meet the needs of children who have no access to school- based meals during the summer, we need community support. This 10-week healthy food distribution will reach 5,000 children and their families (nearly 20,000 people!) every week, providing a Farmer’s Market atmosphere with fresh foods.
By supporting the Kids’ Summer Club, we will recognize you at our 6th Annual ‘Step Up to the Plate’ Telethon, to be held Friday, April 8, 2016.
