There is Such Thing as a Free Lunch!

Find out How to Serve Free Reimbursable Meals to Youth This Summer!

By Arnell Hinkle

Three kids, one job and no idea of how to keep them occupied for the summer? Last year there was a summer program at the church down the street, but times are hard, even for the church, so this year that isn't an option. There used to be a program at the local park that served free lunches, but the park staff were cut this year, so there's no one to serve meals, even if they are free. It's pretty bleak this year for so many families. That's why its even more important to make sure that the federal Summer Food Program is operating in the communities of greatest need across the country. There's a saying that there's no such thing as a free lunch, but if you work with your local school district and/or call your local legislator there just might be a free lunch for the young people in your community. See our Call to Action e-Alert and Click on TAKE ACTION NOW to find out how you can get involved.
