Keep Kids In CNY Fed This Summer

As Seen On

The Syracuse City School District and the Onondaga County Health Department have teamed up to help ensure no child goes hungry while schools are closed.

Kathy Mogle with the Health Department says that kids have been eating healthy all year long, and we want to continue that into the summer.

Meal sites have been set up in the local community, and a key ingredient to their success is that they provide fresh and local fruits and vegetables for the kids, as well as many other healthy food options.

Nationally, the School Breakfast and Lunch Program feeds over 200 million children a year.  In Syracuse, organizers are also planning a summer BBQ in Kirk Park on July 9th.

For more information, call the Food Nutrition Department at (315) 435-4207 or text FOOD to 877-877.
