Summer is a time of fun and play, but for some, it is a time of inconsistency and hunger. School meal programs during the scholastic year feed hundreds of students who otherwise do not have access to food. Fortunately, Provo City School District and neighboring school districts continue this service with summer meal programs to give students access to healthy meals.

“It’s a great, safe place to go where you can have the kids go and enjoy a nice healthy meal,” Marti Woolford, a child nutrition advocate with Utahns Against Hunger, said.

The Daily Herald highlighted efforts and opportunities made possible at schools, libraries and parks in the Utah Valley.
