We shared last week that food insecurity is a very real, very prominent problem among Richmond-area kids during the summer months. In response to that need, the City of Richmond Department of Parks, Recreation, and Community Facilities will host USDA Summer Meals for Kids programs at more than 100 sites around town.

Summer Meals for Kids provides nutritious breakfasts and lunches to children and teens (through age 18). All meals are free, and no registration is required–kids just need to show up at a participating site during meal time Monday through Friday. The program will operate in the Richmond area June 15th through August 28th. Participating sites include community centers, church, local YMCA branches, camps, and schools all over Richmond.
