Free Summer Meal Program for Kids is Underway in Duluth
According to WDIO the Annual Free Summer Meals Program which is funded by the USDA is now underway at a number of schools in Duluth. Pam Bowe who is the Duluth School District Dietitian & Food Service Director said " "We love to see people, and love to feed people."
Children under the age of 18 are able to eat for free while adults are charged $4 for the meal. A healthy breakfast is served from 8am-10:30am and lunch is served from 11:30am-1:00pm. The schools participating on the program are Lester Park Elementary, Myers-Wilkins Elementary, Piedmont Elementary, Laura MacArthur Elementary, Stowe Elementary, and Denfeld High School.
The children also have a chance to play with other kids and use the playgrounds making it a fun play date on top of having a meal. The FREE Summer Meals Program runs until August 24th. Last summer there were 43,000 lunches served and approximately 16,000 breakfasts. Please pass this information on to anyone that you may know who could benefit from this program.
