Summer Meal Programs Awarded $20K

Posted: Updated:
Today Governor Steve Bullock and First Lady Lisa Bullock announced that the Montana No Kid Hungry Program has awarded more than $20,000 in grants to support local summer meal programs.

The money will help add a site or meal, expand days of operation, or increase outreach to students from low-income families who take advantage of the programs.

“Summer is a great time for hikes, camping, and spending time on lakes, but for many Montana families it also means reworking their finances and schedules to ensure their kids have access to nutritious meals,” Governor Bullock said. “Summer meal programs are a great way for families to ensure their kids have access to nutritious meals in a safe and healthy environment.”

 Sites that have received grants are:

 ·         Ronan Middle School

·         Eastgate Elementary School

·         Anaconda Family Resource Center/Boys & Girls Club of Deer Lodge County

·         Lock wood School District 26

·         Community Café

·         Boys & Girls Club of Cascade County

·         Granite County Medical Foundation

·         Thompson Falls School District 2

·         Smallish Oaten College

·         Rosebud Health Care Center

·         Grace Lutheran Church

·         Boulder Elementary School

·         Arlene School District 8-DJ

 “Even during summer, hunger and poor nutrition can have negative impacts on a child’s development,” First Lady Lisa Bullock said. “These summer meal programs are finding innovative ways to ensure that kids have nutritious meals, served in a safe environment.”

 Summer meal programs are free to kids and teens ages 18 and younger. They serve nutritious meals, as well as offering fun learning and recreational activities so kids and teens can stay active and spend time with friends, while enjoying healthy meals. There is no application to fill out and programs do not require proof of income.
