For some children, summer is not a fun time. Many elementary aged children rely daily on their school’s Student Nutrition Program for a snack or meal throughout the school year. In the summer, schools are closed for vacation.
To help those children who sometimes need a little bit more, The Salvation Army Lindsay, Kawartha Lakes Food Coalition, Kawartha Lakes Food Source, and the HKPR District Health Unit partnered together to make nutritious lunches for those who relied on school’s Student Nutrition Programs. The Summer Outreach Lunch Program prepares and distributes lunches two days a week in July and August.
