Free lunch program for those who need it
Are you worried about how you're going to afford to feed your children this summer? Have your children been receiving free or reduced lunches at their school? Then you'll be happy to hear about the Summer Feed Program. It's awesome. (Thanks to Smullin Family for telling us about it in her comment last month. I had never heard about it before but now we're hooked). We've been going every day for the last two weeks. What a wonderful service! Free lunches for kids are handed out at schools and local parks to help keep children from low-income families (that would be us) fed this summer. Children ages 1 to 18 are handed a free lunch and a free milk. The program ends on July 31st, so click on the links to find your nearest location and go check it out. **If you are not a low income family, please do not take advantage of the free summer lunch program. It is intended for those who need it and I would hate to see this program taken away from those who really benefit from it.
