Big Buddy Program will serve as a Sponsor for the 2014 Summer Food Service Program, and we are looking for partner organizations that need help providing food for youth. The Summer Food Service Program, administered by the USDA, provides funding for meals for children during non-school days. If you are a local church, school, or other youth service organization looking for an easy, free meal option for your youth this summer, contact Big Buddy for more information!
Call Kristen at (225) 388-9737 for more information!
Also check out Mayor Kip Holden’s Healthy Eating site for more resources on the Summer Feeding program.
