Communities are helping kids choose healthy drinks, foods and activity
July 9, 2018
 

Planting strawberries in towers and carrot​s in a small swimming pool are just some of the fun activities kids are doing through the Alaska Farm to Summer Meal Program. Summers can be a challenging and hungry time for children. In Alaska, over half of students qualified for free or reduced lunches during the school year. When the school year ends, these children typically lose access to the affordable or free meals. To address this, the U.S. Summer Food Service Program helps approved sites provide meals for free to kids.​
