There is Such a Thing as Free Lunch
For many families, the free lunch program at school was what made ends meet. Now with children home during the day, many families are being forced to make tough decisions between a higher grocery bill and keeping the electricity on. For many, even this isn’t an option. Thankfully, many local programs ensure that no family is without options! From Kids Cruisin Kitchen to Completely Kids, Omaha has several programs designed to keep kids fed! Recently, a $30,000 grant was issued to Omaha to ensure that programs remained available for children and families in need. Many of the programs offer not only a healthy meal, but educational services, crafts, and fun physical activities to keep children engaged!.For the A+ Program schedule, visit here for the June Schedule and here for July Schedule
