Overview: Missoula Food Bank's Kids Table program is helping to address the issue local childhood hunger by providing nutritious meals and snacks to kids in our community during the summer months. Through partnerships with programs which provide summertime opportunities to low-income children, Missoula Food Bank is able to offer needed nutrition to kids who may otherwise go without.
The Need: During the summer months, many families struggle to find the extra resources to replace nutrition that kids receive when they are in school. Kids Table is part of the solution - offering the nutrition element for programs not accessing the summer breakfast and lunch program through Missoula County Public Schools.
Missoula County Public School offers free breakfast and lunch throughout the summer at multiple locations throughout the district. For more information on free summer lunch sites, please visit Missoula County Public School's website.
Program Impacts: Missoula Food Bank partners each year with programs in our community serving low-income kids. In 2013, 12,913 healthy meals and snacks nourished Missoula kids through this program.
