Summer Lunch Program 2017

When school is in session, the students of Rainbow Village's After School Program are provided a free or reduced-price wholesome lunch at school. However, during the summer they may not have access to this meal, or at least not a wholesome one. The summer lunch program ensures that kids have a lunch for summer camp and are maintaining a nutritious and wholesome diet throughout the summer.

This is an ideal team building project to engage organizations, employees, and anyone wanting to contribute to the Summer Lunch Program. Once items are collected off site by volunteer groups, volunteer groups will also distribute lunches to the families on the Tuesday in which they signed up for.
