It’s time to think about keeping children healthy while school is out. United Way of Whiteside County will provide free meals to children
all summer long.
“Our program provides kids in Whiteside County with nutritious meals during the summer months,” said Keri Olson, CEO United Way of Whiteside County. “Making food accessible to our youth when school is not in session is vital to ensuring a healthy community for all.”
Meals will feature kid-friendly foods like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, juice, crackers, granola bars, and fruit cups. No registration or ID is required, and participation is open to all children and teens.
Kids and teens will be able to get a grab and go meal from one of 18 sites throughout Whiteside County. Each site will serve on Wednesdays but will provide three lunches for each child. The program runs every Wednesday from 12:00PM -12:30PM starting June 1 st and ending on August 10 th .
