The summer season has started. Children are excited to be out and about, enjoying friends and sunshine. Yet, for some children summer is not a happy time. For some children, summer brings hunger.

During the school year children are offered two meals a day: breakfast and lunch. They may also receive after school snacks. Without this lifeline, some families cannot afford to feed their children. This is where Summer Meals steps in.

Join #FoodFri on June 16, 2017 to learn more about the Summer Meals program! We'll be joined by @FRACtweets and the @YMCA as we share why summer nutrition is so important.
