Free Summer Lunch Program

By Children Rising
June 29th,2011

The Alameda County Community Food Bank (ACCFB) is offering Summer lunches for kids and teens. Anyone who is 18 years old and under can show up to one of many sites for a free, nutritious lunch!
This will be a valuable resource because, according to the ACCFB, 35 percent of people who rely on the food bank are children under the age of 18. This article from Oakland North explains the need that these summer meals fill and the benefits that they provide.

More information as well as flyers in different languages can be found here.

Children Rising has partnered with the ACCFB to provide bagged meals for kids during school weekends. If you are interested in volunteering during the school year, please visit Children Rising’s website for our Health4Kids program.
