Summer Feeding Programs in Toledo 2013 and Elsewhere

Feed Lucas County Children has announced the where and whens of its 2013 summer feeding program in Lucas County.   It's meant to be a summer stand-in for the school lunch program for low-income young people.  For more information or to find your nearest site, call 419-720-1106. 

Also, Toledo Public Schools will offer what the Toledo Blade called a "hodgepodge" of programs through the school district.  Many of their summer learning programs will include a free lunch.  It includes enrichment programs, high school programs to make up credit (not a free program), and other learning opportunities.  However, there will also be feeding programs for all children at East Broadway, Larchmont, Marshall, Sherman and Westfield Elementary Schools and Bowsher, Rogers, Scott, Start, Waite and Woodward High Schools.  For more information, call 211.

If you live outside Toledo, remember that the federal government funds summer feeding programs throughout the country, though the federal funding sequester is cutting in.  To find a program near you, call 1-866-3-HUNGRY or 1-877-8-HAMBRE (for Spanish speakers), or check this interactive site
