Soroptimist International Donates to Food Bank Kids' Summer Lunch Bag Program
At its May meeting, Soroptimist International of Centre County’s service chair, Fiona Adams, presented the State College Food Bank with a check for $1,500 for the “Kids' Summer Lunch Bag Program.”
The program, which is designed for children who rely on school meals for their primary nutrition, runs from Sunday, June 1, through Sunday, Aug. 31.
During the three summer months, when clients with children receives their monthly distributions, they will also be provided a “Kid's Bag” (or bags) with easy-to-prepare foods such as peanut butter, jelly, applesauce or fruit, soup, pasta and cereal.
Summer can be a time of uncertainty about how, when and what these children will eat.
Last year, the State College Food Bank served approximately 242 children during the summer. Click HERE for more information about the State College Food Bank.
