SUMMER MEALS OREGON 2018
Hello nutrition and hunger prevention partners!
Please join us this Friday, May 18 in raising awareness of the Summer Food Service Program across Oregon. The Summer Meals Promotion day aims to connect families early on to local programs in their communities, so they can plan for a fun and healthy summer!
Share the short newsletter article included within the guide - in 5 languages!
Talk about SummerFoodOregon.org; it will have a new look beginning May 15th, will be available in five languages, and will feature a Summer Meals Experience survey for families so we can better meet their needs (with drawings for $20 gift cards)
