Food Finders Filling In The Gaps For Hungry Kids This Summer

US Department of Agriculture

Food Finders Food Bank wants to make sure area students who qualify for free and reduced lunch at school won’t have to go hungry now that classes are over.

The non-profit is operating the Summer Food Service Program at 26 sites in six counties.

Spokesperson Amy Gaulke says in addition to lunch Monday-through-Friday, some young people will get extra food to take home.

And she says some of the daily lunch sites will offer family meal time education classes and cooking demonstrations.

Those additional activities are being paid for through a $32,000 grant from ConAgra Foods.
