HRDC to begin summer nutrition program for area kids
With the school year over, summer can be a stressful time for families on a budget. HRDC will start their Kids’ Summer Lunch Program beginning Monday, June 14th. The summer-long program provides important access to nutritious meals while offering a safe, supervised location where kids and teens can stay active and spend time with their friends.
This service is run through the nonprofit’s Gallatin Valley Food Bank. Kids’ Summer Lunch is open to all kids and teens aged 18 and under. Free, healthy meals are available at eight meal sites across Bozeman.
Meals served follow USDA nutrition guidelines and help all families save money. There are no applications or proof of income requirements. All meals will be grab & go and will include lunch, as well as breakfast for the next day. Meals may be picked up at any meal site by a parent or guardian – children do not need to be present. Families outside of Bozeman can text “Lunch” to 877-877 to find a meal site near them.
Kids’ Summer Lunch will operate Monday through Friday, June 14th to August 27th, at the following locations:
