The Inner City Ministry of Schenectady has volunteered their own services this summer to make sure that kids in the Capital Region aren’t missing out on the most nutritious meal of the day: lunch! The 2017 Summer Meals Program started this week, in which volunteers handed out free meals to kids at the Jerry Burrell Park.

Not only are volunteers getting the chance to help give out free meals, but they are building connections with the children as well as the children themselves! Although I’ve only touched upon Schenectady, other cities throughout the Capital Region are participating in the Summer Meals Program as well, ensuring that kids in the Capital Region a not missing out on lunch now that school is out of session!
