Register now for the Foodbank’s summer nutritional program

Submitted by the Food Bank.

These are still uncertain times for our community, and food security is a very real, and important worry for so many families. Because of that, our Food Bank offers a FREE summer meals program, to help families with school-aged kids manage their budgets during the summer months.

This program has been designed for our local kids to have access to fresh, nutritious breakfast and lunch items that they enjoy. We know summer is a busy time for many parents, so we are also trying to keep food distribution as simple as possible. With those goals in mind, we distribute bags or boxes of breakfast and lunch items once per week with enough items to last for five days. Each week the items will change a bit, to add interest. Typical foods will include oatmeal, breakfast bars, fresh fruit and kid-friendly raw vegetables, soups, and things to make sandwiches and quesadillas.

We hope this program can make life a little easier for everyone this summer and also help families practice good nutrition. We always welcome suggestions or questions and urge everyone enrolled to call or email the Friday Harbor Food Bank with any feedback!
