Healthy kids need nutritious food
by Livingston Food Resource Center
The school year might be over, but there are still lots of ways the Livingston Food Resource Center works to keep kids healthy and well fed.
During the 2017-2018 school year, 49% of Livingston’s students qualified for free and reduced-price meals. That’s almost HALF of the students in town.
For many, the school meals are their primary source of food during the week. Many of these children face food insufficiency on weekends and return to school on Monday mornings distracted by hunger and not prepared to learn.
And, the challenge only gets bigger during the summer months when school meals are not available.
The Livingston Food Resource Center is committed to making sure that nutritious food is available to all Livingston and
Park County school children - all year. Without this help, our local kids will not gain the education and develop the skills they need to become healthy, successful adults.
LFRC makes nutritious food available for children through target efforts such as our: Healthy Weekend Program; Summer Lunch in the Park; Breakfast in the Classroom; Kids Cooking Camp; and, the Healthy Eaters Club, we also offer classes and events to educate and inspire.
Join us in helping assure ALL kids in Livingston and Park County get the food they need to grow, to learn, and to have a healthy, fun Summer.
