St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance is sponsoring the 2016 Summer Food Service Program for Children and will provide meals at locations throughout the valley.

The purpose of the summer food program helps many children, particularly those who participate in the free breakfast and lunch programs during the school year, according to a press release.

Free meals will be available to all eligible children, 18 and under, at participating sites within the approved geographical area without discrimination against any child because of race, color, national origin, sex age or disability.

For information on dates and times of the more than 100 locations where meals are provided for qualifying children, go to FirstFoodBank.org or call 602-242-3663.
