If you are one of these families, or know a child that could benefit from a free meal this summer – please share the following information with them.

For many kids, summertime means two things: fun and friends. But when school’s out, that also means that families can’t count on their kids eating meals at school, and already tight family food budgets have to be stretched even further. Parents also know that growing kids have big appetites.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) offers free summer meals to kids across Colorado similar to School Lunch and Breakfast Programs, except meals are free to all kids that come to a registered summer meals site.

Summer Meals Programs Details:

  • Meals are FREE to children and teens ages 18 and younger who come to a summer meals sites
  • Free summer meals will help families save money and stretch their already tight food budgets
  • Food served at summer meal sites follows USDA nutrition guidelines and are paid for by the USDA
  • Summer meals sites are at safe places for kids to go such as schools, churches, community centers and other places that are safe for kids and teens to go to
  • May sites offer educational and recreational activities that kids of all ages can participate in so they can eat, hang out with friends and take part in activities offered
  • Parents don’t need to apply to the program to get a free summer meal for their kids. They can simply bring their child to a summer meals site in their community and their kids can enjoy it without the hassle of having to fill out an application.

  1. - Efficient energy planning: zone, sector and slope.
    One of the largest permaculture communities in the US, Earthhaven Ecovillage,
    is located in the nearby town of Black Mountain. The birds are singing, and
    no traffic can yet be heard.

  2. To make use of the penis stretcher discount, you will have to go
    to the main site, make a purchase of one of X4 Labs products and then click on the Buy button.
    The three main factors that will determine cost are the size of the storage unit you need, how long you plan to keep or store it,
    and how far the unit has to be transported. VOIPo offers toll free number, forwarded number and fax services.
