Food Bank of Northern Nevada offers free summer meals for low-income children
RENO, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) —
Summer isn't fun for children who are hungry.
Low-income children who depend on free lunch and breakfast during the school year can be at risk of hunger during the summer months when school meals are not available.
The Food Bank of Northern Nevada has joined forces with several community partners to provide free, nutritious meals for children and teens ages 1-18 years old.
During the summer of 2017, roughly 4,000 kids participated in the free meals across Washoe County.
Meals are served at 43 different sites across Reno, Sparks, Golden Valley, Sun Valley and Stead every weekday from June 12 through August 3.
