Got a Great Summer Story to Tell? Don’t be Shy, Share!
We’ve been gathering leads and listening to your stories, and right now we’re especially interested in hearing all about your summer programs. Are you serving children with special needs in inclusive settings where they’re making friends with typically developing peers? Will this summer be the first time they’ll have regular access to a pool and learn how to swim? Or maybe you’ve got a great nutrition education component that’s turning kids into enthusiastic, health-conscious cooks - whatever your story, share it with us at mystories@thechildrenstrust.org. You could see your work in a feature story on our website, in the pages of the Miami Herald or on the local TV news!

FREE Summer Meals for Children & Youth - Sign Up TODAY!!
Summer BreakSpot, a program that provides free meals to children and youth ages birth-18 in participating summer programs, is underway. We encourage ALL children and youth summer program providers to contact available sponsors today to secure participation at each of their program sites. Be sure to confirm available menus (hot or cold) and delivery times BEFORE making a decision on which sponsor best meets the needs of your participants and program environment.

In addition, we strongly urge providers to designate their program sites as “open sites,” where children and youth ages birth-18 living in their communities may also participate in the free meals program, even if they do not participate in provider programming. Open sites serve a critical role in minimizing food insecurity in Miami-Dade while schools are closed and are, for some children, a literal lifesaver. The Children’s Trust is also supporting Florida Impact efforts to increase accessibility to summer meals for those children who have no access to open sites, through pediatric clinics and WIC and HUB sites. Contact Christina Sudduth at csudduth@flimpact.org for more information.
