Our local schools work hard to make a child’s learning experience as fruitful as possible. Along with their significant efforts in the classroom, they also offer free meals each day to students who qualify. A significant percentage of kids in our local schools are eligible. In many schools, the number is 100%.
These free meals offered during the school year are important for the 1 in 5 children nationally who suffer from hunger. But what about the summer when schools are not in session?
This summer, the Interfaith Council of La Mesa will be providing lunch to children under the age of 18, no questions asked. The meals will be served at the Vista La Mesa Christian Church (Massachusetts and University) on each of the 37 days of summer recess (June 22 – August 12). The food will be provided by the La Mesa/Spring Valley School District.
