Summer food service for children announced; see full list of locations

Posted: Updated:

When schools close for the summer, numerous children in northeast Iowa need to have the security of knowing they won't go hungry.  During the school year, the kids rely on free or reduced-price school breakfast and lunch. The loss of those two meals each day can present a challenge to families in our community.

“The summer months are not easy for many of our northeast Iowa neighbors who have children,” said Barbara Prather, Executive Director of the Northeast Iowa Food Bank. “When school ends, so does access to school meals that families and children rely on.”

So, the food bank is doing what they do best - helping.  They're setting up 15 locations to provide summer breakfast meals for children, all thank you funding from Century Link, as well as many other donors.
