Beaver County’s 2014 Summer Lunch Youth Program

Feeding YouthMillions of low-income students rely on free or low-cost school meals. But when summer vacation starts, the school meals end. This means youth who had access to nutritious meals during the school year may be undernourished or hungry over the summer.

The good news is:  Healthy lunches are available for children, ages 18 and younger, regardless of income. No registration needed; no paperwork required. Various sites offer lunches on various weekdays through mid-August.

The federally funded Summer Food Service Program is coordinated through the Greater Pittsburgh Area Food Bank.

Participating local organizations include the Beaver County YMCA, the Salvation Army in Beaver Falls; the United Way of Beaver County and the Aliquippa School District.
