For children whose household resources are limited, the Free and Reduced-Price Meal Program at public schools helps provide a healthy breakfast and lunch every school day. But what happens when children are out of school for the summer?
Allen Community Outreach provides children in need with bags of healthy, easy-to-prepare breakfast and lunch foods through the annual Kids Summer Food Program.
