Longfellow Mobile Meal Distribution
Apples, Bananas and Oranges...Oh My!
"I can pick one of each?" -exclaimed Tony with a smile on his face
Tony, his mom and his five brothers and sisters joined us at our very first Mobile Kids' Meal Distribution of the summer at Longfellow Elementary School. New to the district, the family was walking by and were waved over by friendly volunteers who quickly explained the summer meal program that is available for families every Thursday.
The children were excited to be able to pick out fruit, just for them and take home a bag full of meals and snacks. Their mom smiled and asked if they could come back next week. When volunteers packed up to head back to the food bank, they spotted the family in a nearby park waving as they ate the fruit they had just picked out.
With school meals no longer available, summer can be a long and difficult time for many families. NEW this summer we are piloting a Mobile Meal Distribution at Longfellow Elementary from 11:00 a.m.- 12:00 p.m. every Thursday as an additional site that youth and families can get food resources.
