Boys & Girls Clubs of North County offer free lunch during the summer months

FALLBROOK—In San Diego County, one in four children are food insecure. Though approximately 178,000 kids are at risk of hunger, only 23 percent of children and teens access free meals in the summer time. This means that 77 percent of students who rely on free and reduced price meals are missing out on meals when school’s out for the summer.

Feeding America San Diego’s Summer Food Service Program and Boys & Girls Clubs of North County have paired up to administer a free lunch program at the local Fallbrook Club. This program is a federally funded, state administered program.

to 1 p.m.

They do not have to be a Boys & Girls Club member; they just need to show up in the games room between this time. Right now the club is providing over 75 free lunches a day and serving over 200 kids a day during the summer.

The Boys & Girls Clubs summer program is also free to attend as long as the children are members and come after 12 p.m. Summer program hours are from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

For more information about summer programming, summer camps or the lunch program, call the Boys & Girls Club administration office at (760) 728-5871 or log on to www.bgcnorthcounty.org.
