Kavulich announces free summer meal program for children
HARRISBURG, June 29 – State Rep. Sid Michaels Kavulich is notifying residents of a program to ensure children do not go hungry this summer.
The Pennsylvania Summer Food Service Program connects people to local sites that offer free meals to children throughout the summer months. More than 2,000 sites participate in the program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
“In many instances, school is the only place children receive a well-balanced meal,” said Kavulich. “This is a great program that doesn’t turn any children away.”
Kavulich said no income requirements exist and all children who show up will receive a nutritious meal.
The Pennsylvania Summer Meals Location Finder (www.pasummermeals.com) lets someone find a nearby location by typing in their street address and desired meal, which, depending on the site, can include breakfast, lunch, supper or morning or afternoon snack.
“This is a great cause to support. If anyone is interested in becoming a sponsor, opening a site or volunteering for the program, I encourage them to contact my office for more information on how to get involved.” Kavulich said.
Information on sponsorship or volunteering in the program can be found at www.whyhunger.org.
